'Ladie's' sign not positive statement for schoA 1 



Those who enter Natchitoches on their way to Northwest- 
ern via Highway 6 can't help but see the misspelled water 
tower. Some feel the error does not promote a scholastic 
image for a university. 

Staff Writer 

Imagine if you will the following 
series of events: 

I'm bringing a couple of friends up 
to Northwestern for the weekend. 
While traveling on 1-49, we begin to 
talk about Northwestern. 

"Northwestern must be boring. 
How can you stand it there?" 

"It' s not that bad. You leam to love 
it I can always find something to do," 
I reply. 

"Northwestern is so small. What 
has it done?" they continue to argue. 

"Plenty!" I say. "We've won the 
S outhland Con ference. There has been 
an increase in enrollment and our 
average ACT score has gone up. 
Scholars' College is one of a kind. 
Should I go on?" 

"No, we see why you love it so 
much. I guess it can't be that bad." 

I exit the interstate and head down 
highway 6. Just when I've convinced 
my friends what a great university 

Northwestern really is, they see the 
water tower with the words ' I love 
NSU. NSULadie'sNCAA89.'Ifelt 
my heart drop when my friends saw 
the misspelled word. They joked about 
how great Northwestern was and how 
they were so great they could misspell 
any word they choose. I sank down 
lower and lower into my driver's seat 
as they continued to laugh at the fact 
that ladies' was spelled incorrect. 

Could you imagine something like 
I just described really happening. It 
would not only be embarrassing for 
the university but also for the City of 

When I noticed the misspelling in 
April I was sure it was going to be 
fixed. I laughed at the idea of the 
mistake and waited for it to be fixed. 
Well, I waited, and I waited, and I 
waited. It'sJune now, and the mistake 
has not been corrected. This little 
small and probably unnoticed mistake 
hurts Northwestern 's image. Can you 
believe a university would misspell a 


word on an object that is seen by th» 

sands of people each day.

ARA closure causes problems 

Staff Writer 

After doing the article concerning 
whether or not the students would have 
a place to go on the weekends to eat, I 
began to think. 

My freshman year at Northwestern, 
I didn ' t have a car. I was however lucky 
enough to have friends to drive me 
where I needed to go and was able to 
afford a refrigerator. During the sum- 
mer last year, they served meals on 
Friday and only opened ITZA Pizza on 
the weekends in which there were big 
camps at Northwestern. If it hadn't 
been for my friends driving me to the 

grocery store and buying only mi- 
crowavable foods or having Blake's 
Fried Chicken deliver, I probably 
wouldn't have eaten. 

But that is why this issue has me 
spellbound. What about the freshman 
that has come to NSU, no car and no 
refrigerator and lives a good five hours 
away? Let's hope she or he has a per- 
sonality that enables the person to make 
friends with cars. 

I understand that NSU is in a tight 
squeeze for money at the end of this 
fiscal year. But it seems to me that if I 
am going to pay $1000, excluding 
books, to come here and reside on 

campus, then some facility should be 
available for me and others like me to 
eat on the weekends. 

This raises another question. If NSU 
is in such a squeeze that they have to 
close Kyser because its upkeep per 
month is so high, why open four other 
buildings? Are we really saving our- 
selves money? 

I guess on the brighter side, it is only 
the first week of school, many changes 
could occur before the end of the se- 
mester to benefit the students. So if you 
are being cheated right now, all we can 
do is ask for a change and be patient 

Unannounced fee increases 
catch students by surprise 



Students returning to Northwestern 
for the summer session received much 
more than they anticipated. The Uni- 
versity raised the summer tuition fee 
from the previous summer of $312 
dollars for six or more hours, to $347 
dollars for six hours. 

This increaseof $35 dollars is under- 
standable with 8^' Cost of higher edu- 
cation increasing every year. What 
students found^ut, however, was the 
tuition raise did not stop there. For the 
summer session, every additional hour 
over six is $48 dollars per credit hour. 
Combined with additional lab fees and 

the increase in student insurance, many 
students did not have the money to pay 
for the hours they registered for. 

The fee increase was not published 
in the summer schedule of classes, nor 
were students informed of the rise in 
costpriorto registration. Students first 
heard of the price increase at registra- 
tion. This led to many students drop- 
ping their register classes from eight or 
nine hours, (which cost $443 and $49 1 , 
respectively) to the minimum full time 
student of six hours. 

I was unable to find anyone who 
could explain the tuition increase, or 
why students were not told prior to 
registration. The Registrars office di- 

rected me to the Controllers office. 
The Controllers' office informed me it 
would not be possible to see Mr.Carl 
Jones until Tuesday, June 6. I spoke 
with Mr. Jones on the telephone, but he 
assured me the details were too lengthy 
to discuss over the phone and sug- 
gested we meet instead. 

I also made an appointment with 
Dr. Alost to see if he could explain the 
situation to me. Unfortunately, 
Dr Alost had a scheduling conflict and 
was forced to reschedule my appoint- 
ment for next week. All I wanted to 
know was why tuition went up, and 
why students were not told. Is this 
really that difficult a request?

the breakfast hours needed to be

Due to the fact that there was a five 
day work week last summer, the Un- 
ion was able to operate on Fridays. 
However, this summer Northwestern 
is working on a four day work week, 
this means you can't eat in the Union 
on Fridays. 

"There was once the idea of using 
the shutUe bus to take students to the 
Recreation Complex in order for them 
to go eat But due to budget cuts and so 
forth, the idea couldn't materialize," 
said O'Leary.

O'Leary said, 'The meal plan of- 
fered in the summer is not designed to 
serve a seven day workweek. We need 
money to operate, and not enough 
demand, then we can't pay the staff to

early as June 17 that we try opening 
ITZA Pizza for two weekends to see 
what the demand is for a food service 

on the weekends. It would serve sand-^ 
wiches , chips, tea, and a possible salad 

There will be definitely one week- 
' end in which either the Union or Iber- 
ville will be open, and that is the 
weekend before finals. O'Leary said, 
"If a major camp comes in, then we 
have the numbers to open the facility 
on the weekend"

Jim Wells returns to alma mater 

Sports Editor 

Jim Wells, a graduate assistant coach 
in the highly-successful baseball pro- 
gram at Louisiana State University has 
been named head baseball coach at 
Northwestern State University. 

Northwestern president Dr. Robert 
Alost announced that Wells' appoint- 
ment becomes effective July 1 pend- 
ing the approval of the Board of Trus- 
tees for the Louisiana Colleges and 

Wells succeeds Johnnie Emmons, 
who is retiring on June 30. Emmons, 
head baseball coach at Northwestern 
for the past three seasons, has served 
the Northwestern Athletic Department 
in various capacities — including as- 
sistant football coach, men's tennis 
coach, and women's tennis coach — 
for more than 20 years. 

Wells graduated from Northwest- 
em State in 1980 with a degree in 

physical education. Wells has been 
with the LSU baseball program since 
1986 and is currently with the team in 
Omaha at the College World Series. 

Before moving to LSU, where he 
received a master's degree in educa- 
tion administration, Wells was head 
baseball coach at Loyola High of Shre- 
veport from 1982-1986. He compiled 
a record of 78-25 at Loyola 

The school had not participated in 
post-season competition for 10 years 
before Wells became head coach. He 
then guided Loyola to the playoffs for 
four consecutive years. The team 
reached the state championship finals 
twice, and Wells was the High School 
Coach of the Year in the state, district, 
and city in 1983 and 1986. 

Wells has coached outfielders and 
hitters on LSU teams that have ranked 
fourth in the nation and participated in 
the NCAA College World Series over 
the past four years. LSU's outfielders 

ranked first in fielding in the South- 
eastern Conference during the 1987 

Alost said Wells, 34, "has rich ex- 
perience in coaching and recruiting at 
LSU, and that background will be 
invaluable to him as he endeavors to 
develop a baseball program at North- 
western that will be competitive at 
conference and national levels." 

The NSU president also stated, "I'm 
impressed with Jim Wells knowledge 
of baseball, his enthusiasm and the 
esteem in which he is held by players, 
coaches, and others with whom he has 
been associated in athletics." 

Wells stated, "I am elated to have 
the opportunity to return to my alma 
mater as head baseball coach. The 
challenge to make North western's 
baseball team one of the best in the 
state and nation is exciting, and I ac- 
cept that challenge with pride and grati-

Tennis team ties for 
first with five wins 


Sports Editor 

The Northwestern State's women's 
tennis team finished this past 1989 
season in a two-way tie for first place 
i in the Southland Conference. The Lady 
Demons won five of nine individual 
championships at the Spring Sports 
Festival hosted by Sam Houston State 
in Huntsville, Texas. The competition 
was held back in May and concluded 
the 1989 season. 

Southwest Texas tied the Lady 
Demons with 50 points, while Sam 
Houston State finished third with 19 
points. Northeast Louisiana and North 
Texas tallied 17 points to finish in 
deadlock for fourth. 

"You're always happy when you 
win the conference," said graduate 
assistant coach Alex Kukaras , "but it 
would have been nice to have it our- 

Seniors Shayne Fitzwilliam and 
Barbara Tons went out with a flurry, 
each winning their singles title and 
teaming for the championship at No. 1 
doubles. Fitzwilliam, who owns the 
career mark for most wins (62), won 
the conference title at No. 1. That gave 
her the third championship of her ca- 
reer and totaled her season record to 
13-4. Tons also walked away with her 

third title, and finished with a season 
mark of 14-3. The fabulous twosome 
also teamed for their second doubles 

Jane Paterson and Victoria Simms 
also finished as Southland Conference 
champs. Paterson finished with a 14- 
3 season record and took the tide at the 
No. 4 position. Simms completed the 
season with the school best record at 
16-1 in the No. 5 slot 

Karen Patel and Sara Jones each 
took second place honors at No. 3 and 
No. 6 respectively. Patel ended her 
sophomore season with a 14-3 mark 
while Jones went 1 1-6 this season. 

Overall, the Lady Demons finished 
with the best record in school history 
(percentage wise) at 13-2 (.867). The 
only losses were a9-0 match to Louisi- 
ana State and a 5-4 decision to co- 
Southland Conference Champs South- 
west Texas. 

"I'm pleased with the season," said 
Kukaras. "We had so much bad luck 
with the weather (10 matches were 
rescheduled and five were cancelled), 
but in the end it really didn't matter." 

"We improved a lot from last sea- 
son. Last season we finished second, 
this year we won it. We are the cham-

Capitol rally supports education 

Managing Editor 

A student march on the Louisiana 
State Capitol in support of higher 
education is planned for Wednesday, 
June 21. Several universities, includ- 
ing Northwestern, will participate in 
the rally, sponsored by each school's 
respective Student Government Asso- 

Busses for those who wish to join in 
the walk on the capitol, called "Save 
Our Schools" or S.O.S, will leave 
Northwestern at 8 a.m. Wednesday 
from the circle drive in front of the 
University Bookstore. The rally itself 
will begin at 12:30 p.m. on the capitol 
steps. The approximate time of return 
is6p.m. Students who wish to provide 

their own transportation or who are 
already in the Baton Rouge area are 
welcome to come. 

Students, faculty and staff are en- 
couraged to attend and show support 
for Louisiana education. Students who 
attend the event will be excused from 
Wednesday's classes, provided they 
sign an official list of names on the bus. 
Those who provide their own trans- 
portation must sign the list while at the 
capitol if they wish to be excused from 
classes. Tests slated for that day will 
be rescheduled. 

"We expect to have a few hundred 
going," said Northwestern SG A Presi- 
dent Laura Willis, adding, "but we'd 
take a lot more." She asks that all 
attending the rally wear purple and 

white to show Northwestern spirit "If 
someone wants to bring a sign, they 
can as long as it is in good taste." 

News media from across the state 
will be covering the event. There is no 
specific program scheduled for the 
rally, but Willis hopes that Governor 
Buddy Roemer will "at least show up 
to acknowledge our presence." The 
Louisiana State University Student 
Government Association will be hand- 
ing the specifics of the march. 

There will also be a press confer- 
ence held today, Tuesday, June 20, at 
Louisiana Tech for students at univer- 
sities in northern Louisiana.

Scholars' College fellow to travel abroad for studies 


Dr. Tom Samet, associate professor 
°f English Literature at the Louisiana 
Scholars' College has been awarded a 
Pulbright Lectureship at the Univer- 
sity of Warsaw at Poland for the 1989- 
^0 academic year. 

Dr. Samet, a Phi Beta Kappa gradu- 
ate from Michigan State, received his 
doctorate from Brown University. He 
began his teaching career at Rutgers 
University, where he directed the 
English Honors Program at Douglass 

"Having worked with honors pro- 
grams for several years,"said Samet, 
1 was tremendously excited by the op- 
portunity to develop a genuinely au- 

tonomous college with its own faculty 
and curriculum. 1 am not aware of 
anything comparable at any other 
public university, and I think it is the 
best possible approach to the educa- 
tion of bright and serious undergradu- 

Since joining the Louisiana Schol- 
ars' College in 1987,he has taught 
English and American Literature.and 
has participated in the Texts and Tradi- 
tions Seminar taught collegewide. 
Samet was selected for the lectureship 
in nationwide competition judged by a 
panel of scholars in American Litera- 

"I know my affiliation with an inno- 
vative, interdisciplinary program like 
the Louisiana Scholars' College is one 

of the reasons that I was chosen for the 
Lectureship," stated Samet. 

Samet has also held a Woodrow 
Wilson Fellowship and has been the 
recipient of a year-long research fel- 
lowship from the American Council of 
Learned Societies. A specialist in Brit- 
ish and American Literary modem- 
ism, he has published essays and re- 
views in Critical Inquiry, The New 
Republic, Novel, Studies in the Novel, 
and Centennial Review. 

He currently serves as co-editor of 
a volume of essays on Kate Chopin, 
and is at work on a book-length study 
of the American literary critic Lionel 

Established in 1961 and funded by 

program is intended "to enable the 
government of the United States to 
increase mutual understanding between 

the people of the United S tates and the 
people of other countries." 

The scholarship is also intended to 
foster a larger awareness of American 
culture; and the countries are eager for 
Americans to teach classes that por- 
tray American life. 

Dr. Samet will be teaching three 
classes while in Poland. The first is a 
modified version of the Scholars'

Save OUR 



Wednesday, June 21, is a momen- 
tous occasion. Every state-supported 
school throughout the state of Louisi- 
ana will be represented in Baton Rouge 
for a march on the state capital. This 
march is to show the governor, the 
legislature, and the people of Louisi- 
ana that students support their schools. 
The march is "Save Our Schools," 
appropriately S.O.S. All college, vo- 
tech, and high school students are 
encouraged to attend. 

Unfortunately, June 21 is also the 
first day of summer. Although all 
schools are participating, summer 
school attendance is only a small frac- 
tion of fall and spring enrollment. Since 
the legislature will be finished with 
budget cuts by fall, it is necessary to 
participate now. Thesecuts could elimi- 
nate entire departments, such as busi- 
ness, or could mean the closing of 
many fine institutions. Northwestern 
needs your participation on Wednes- 
day. The legislature will not be im- 
pressed if 100 people represent the 
entire state. In the words of a great 
leader, "A poor showing is worse than 
no showing at all."

Talent Identification Program to take place at NSU 

Staff Writer 

Beginning on July 9 and lasting for 
three weeks, Northwestern State Uni- 
versity will hold The Advance Pro- 
gram, a satellite of Duke University's 
Talent Identification Program (TIP). 
The students will be housed in 
Boozman Hall, will attend classes and 
will eat in the Louisiana School for 
Math, Science and the Arts high school 

TIP originated from Duke Univer- 
sity, and was begun to keep young 
students from losing their interests: 
"We just have such a crying need now 
for scientists, mathematicians, poets: 

you name it. And it seems as if we have 
gotten ourselves in a predicament of 
looking to other nations, far more than 
this nation has ever done in the past. .. . 
I just think we have far too many good 
minds in this nation that are going to 
waste. That talent needs to be nur- 
tured, and we can't afford to lose that 
talent," said TIP Executive Director 
Dr. Robert N. Sawyer in a recent 
Natchitoches Times article. 

Under Sawyer's supervision, the 
program was designed and the search 
for locations began. Northwestern is 
one of four sponsors including West- 
ern Kentucky University in Bowling 
Green, the University of Southern 

Mississippi in Hattiesburg and South- 
em Methodist University in Dallas. 
NortHwestem was chosen because 
Duke became instantly impressed with 
the faculty available (both from NSU 
and LSMSA). Housing the Louisiana 
Scholars' College and the Louisiana 
School for Math, Science and the Arts 
added by creating a "learned atmos- 

Because of the outstanding work of 
our offices at Northwestern, lead by 
NSU/TIP liaison Lynda Tabor, Lou- 
isiana had a gain of 36 percent of 
seventh grade students to take the 
National examinations (ACT and SAT) 

in applying to TIP. This gain so im- 
pressed Sawyer that he wholly sup- 
ports NSU's Advance Program and he 
gives it unofficial national preference. 

Students in the program will be in 
class six hours a day, five days a week 
and one hour study hall every night. 
They are even required to attend three 
hour Saturday sessions. "This pro- 
gram is geared to allow the study of 
one discipline intensely. It's for those 
students that get so wrapped up in one 
thing that they just don't feel like being 
bothered by anything else," said the 
director of the Advance Program, 
Lynda Tabor. These students will be 

in one class for 1 14 hours in those three 

The Advance Program at NSU will 
be receiving students from Southwest 
Texas, Arkansas, and of course all of 
Louisiana. "This program serves 
Louisiana first and foremost," said 
Tabor. All students had to score 90 
percent or above the average of Col- 
lege-Bound Seniors on a national test. 

These seventh graders will be of- 
fered Writing under Bill Robert; Pre- 
Calculus under Martha K. Talbert; 
Math with Horace Butler; Latin under 
David Wood; and Computer with 
Richard Loften.

A "French Partner" program has 
been established by Northwestern 
Abroad to provide visiting French 
students with the opportunity to get a 
close look at American and Louisianian 
life and culture. 

Dr. Grady Harper, director of the 
international travel-study program, 
says that Northwestern students who 
volunteer to be a partner to one of the 
38 French students will be establishing 
lasting friendships while gaining valu- 
able knowledge about European life- 
styles and customs. 

The American partners, who are 
not required to be enrolled at North- 
western during the summer, will host 
tops to their home on two weekends. 
Scheduled for July 14-16 and again on 
July 28-30, these weekends will allow 
the French students to take part the 
daily life of an American family, as

their partners during such informal 
a ctivities as on-campus recreational

The day after is July 14, Bastille 
Day in France. "This is not just any 
Bastille Day, since this day is the 200th 
anniversary of the storming of the 
Bastilleprison,"saidHarper. "Inhonor 
of this special day, the French students 
will throw a party at the Alumni Center 
in the afternoon when they will invite 
their American partners to sample 
French food which they have pre- 
pared." When the celebration is over, 
the French students go to their partner's 
home for the weekend. 

Other scheduled activities for the 
campus stay program are: July 25 — 
French students will have the opportu- 
nity to spend time "on the job" with 
their American partners; July 28 — the 
second overnight stay for the French 
student at the partner's house; and 
August 4 — the French students will go 
home with their partners, returning to 
the campus that Sunday, August 6. 

Harper encourages the American 
partners to contact their French stu- 
dents as frequently as possible for 
conversations, social activities, mov 
ies and other events that would provide 
the visiting students with enriching

A reception was held in honor of Miss 
Valerie Brosset, Miss Louisiana 1988, 
at 7:00. 

Wednesday's activities started off 
bright and early at 8:00 with a re- 
hearsal at the Civic Center Theatre. 
The contestants were divided into two 
groups; A and B. Cindy was in group 
A. After lunch, group A took a boat trip 
on the Smile America Houseboat. 
There was a general rehearsal for ev- 
eryone starting at 7:30 . 

Thursday's events started at 8:30 
with a rehearsal, then with Group A 
rehearsing their evening gown and 
swimsuit competitions. After practic- 
ing the opening and closing numbers 
and eating lunch, Cindy was able to go 
back to the dorm. At 1 :30 she needed to 
be ready for her seven minute inter- 
view with the judges. 

After eating dinner at the New Or- 
leans Cafe, the first preliminary night 
started at 8:00. There Cindy competed 
in the swimsuit competition and the 
evening gown competition. Cindy wore 
a white swimsuit and a black sequin 
evening gown. 

Friday's schedule also started at 
8:30 with a rehearsal of the opening 
and closing numbers. At 11:30 Group 
A rehearsed their talent for the second 
preliminary night which would start at 
8:00. Cindy performed her piano ren- 
dition of 'Twelfth Street Rag." 

Saturday started just the same, a 
general rehearsal at 8:30. There was a 
television rehearsal at 10:00. Then it 
was time. At 6:45 everyone left for the 
26th Miss Louisiana Pageant The 
pageant was televised on channel 5 
and 8. Cindy won preliminary swim- 
suit After the pageant the Miss Lou- 
isiana Ball took place. 

And, on Sunday, everyone was free 
to go at 11:00. 

Carl Henry, Director of Student 
Activities, said, "SAB supports their 

queen in any way they can. We tape 
their talent, their interview, we give 
them mock interviews, and most of all, 
we give them support at the Miss 
Louisiana pageant. We worked really 
hard. We sent her cards everyday and 
we sent flowers to promote morale. 

" Cindy, as a representativeof NSU, 
couldn't have done any better. When 
she walked out on that stage and said 
her name and who she was represent- 
ing, I can't think of a better advertise- 
ment — I mean who wouldn't want to 
come to Northwestern? We are very 
proud of her. And, even though she 
didn't make the top ten, she is our top 
ten," said Henry. 

Marilyn Haley, coordinator of stu- 
dent employment and the chaperone 
for Miss LOB for three years, said, "I 
am very pleased with herperformance. 
She was an ace. We couldn't have 
asked any more of her, she went out 
there and gave it her all. The week was 
very fast paced. We had a great time 
together and built a friendship that will 
last forever." 

Some of the chaperone's duties are 
to insure that their charge gets up on 
time, advises them on wardrobe deci- 
sions, and helps to move her in and out 
of the dorm and the dressing room. 
"We are with them the whole time to 
not only support them butcritique them 
on their performances," said Haley. 

Assistant Director of Student Ac- 
tivities Liz Carroll said, "This was my 
first year to go and see the pageant and 
I thought that she was wonderful. Out 
of all of the girls, she just stood out 
from the rest." 

Carroll commented on how Cindy 
showed "real class after not being cho- 
sen after so much hard work, and then 
coming out on stage and performing 
the closing number. She showed no 
disappointment and her smile still 

showed through. Not many of us could 
do that, that shows true class." 

Cindy, the daughterof Mr. and Mrs. 
Earl Bethel, also competed in the Miss 
Louisiana in 1988 as Miss Natchito- 
ches, in 1987 as Miss Louisiana Soy- 
bean Festival, and in 1986 as Miss 
Louisiana Art and Folklife. She was a 
non-finalist talent winner in 1987 and 

On campus, Cindy is a member of 
Phi Mu and Purple Jackets. She is also 
president of the Society of Professional

SAB plans fall, spring events during summer 

Managing Editor 

The lazy days of summer are here, 
but there's no rest for Northwestern 's 
Student Activities Board as they con- 
tinue to work and plan ahead for up- 
coming campus events. 

The SAB Summer Council meets 
every Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Stu- 
dent Union. Led by Vice-President 
Shane Smith, the Council makes plans 
for summer activities as well as those 
in the fall and spring. 

The main item on the agenda is 
tailgate parties before each home foot- 
ball game in the fall. SAB is respon- 

sible for entertainment before the 
games, usually providing a band and 
some form of food. As of the last 
meeting, the Council had decided on 
three bands to play during the parties: 
Exit on September 16, NSU vs. East 
Texas State; and the DJ Outlaw, Sep- 
tember 23, NSU vs. MacNeese. The 
popular band Snazz will highlight the 
Homecoming tailgate party on Octo- 
ber 7. Other bands and acts for the 
remaining games have been booked. 

SAB is also planning to have an- 
other "Christmas in July" out at the 
Recreation Complex. A day of food 
and fun, "Christmas in July" was a big 

hit for SAB last year. 

Another of the Council's plans is 
for Welcome Week, August 21-25. 
This is the first week of school and 
several activities have been suggested, 
from a watermelon party at the gates of 
Northwestern to a block party in front 
of the Student Union. 

The Summer Council of the Stu- 
dent Activities Board needs student 
involvement Any and all wishing to 
participate in the planning and execu- 
tion of campus events should contact 
Vice-President Shane Smith or SAB 
advisor Carl Henry at the SAB office, 


Rally...continued from 

SGA Treasurer Karen Engeron 
stressed the fact that "this is not a 
protest." However, reports from other 
schools that might be more affected by 
the budget cuts, such as LSU — Baton 
Rouge and Nicholls State in Thi- 
bodeaux, say that the rally might prog- 
ress into a actual protest. 

"We of Northwestern just want to 
show Governor Roemer that we sup- 
port our education system," said 
Engeron, further commenting, "I find 
it ironic that the governor's election 
platform was education, but now he's 
making all these cuts to the education 

According to Dr. Robert Alost, 
president of Northwestern, the State 
Board of Trustees which governs higher 
education in the state originally planned 
to dismiss classes for all state colleges 
on the day of the rally . "But they didn ' t 
*ant to support the march per se, so 
they allowed each school to make the 
decision," said Alost. 

In a recent press release, Tim Her- 
nandez, SGA president at LSU, asked 
that students at all colleges, state and 
Private, make an effort to show the 
support for their institution. Hernan- 
dez said that The Council of Student 
Body Presidents, the organization that 
Planned the event, believes that "edu- 
cation is an issue that universities and 
colleges, vocational-technical schools, 
even high school students should 
Participate in because the state's budget 
directly affects each involved." 

Willis urges everyone to get in- 
volved. "This is important because 
these cuts decide the future of our 
College. We could lose university

'Up, up, and away...': Brown soars past medalist 

Sports Editor 

The old Superman line "it's a bird, 
it's a plane..." could be used in imag- 
ing Brian Brown's high jumping ca- 
reer. Brian is the world-class high 
jumper from Northwestern State Uni- 
versity that is inching his way into the 
record books. By changing his ap- 
proach to the high jump bar, Brian 
Brown is soaring past his competition. 

Brown jumped 7-7 1/4 Saturday 
night to beat an old friend, Olympic 
silver medalist Hollis Conway of S hre - 
veport, and win the high jump compe- 
tition at the USA/Mobil Outdoor Track 
and Field Championships. 

The victory, due in part to Brown's 
switch to a longer approach run toward 
the high jump bar, rifted the senior-to- 
be from New Iberia into world promi- 
nence in his event 

This has also turned him into an 
international traveler. Brown spent 
Monday going to New Orleans to get a 
passport, which he will be needing at 
least three times in the next three 

Brown leaves today to compete for 
the United States this weekend in a 
four-way international meet at Bir- 

mingham, England. Joining the Ameri- 
can team will be athletes from the 
Soviet Union, West Germany, and 
Great Britain. 

Brown and Conway will represent 
the U.S. in their event at the World 
University Games in Duisburg, West 
Germany, August 21-31. They also 
will compete for the South team in the 
U.S. Olympic Sports Festival July 28- 
30 in Oklahoma City. 

By winning the USA/Mobil title, 
Brown earned the right to be America' s 
sole representative at the World Cup 
Games September 8-10 in Barcelona, 

"The World Cup is almost like the 
Olympics. That' s how prestigious and 
important it is in track and field," said 
Northwestern coach Leon Johnson, 
who watched Brown's victory in 
Houston over America' s top jumpers — 
Conway, Brian Stanton, and Jimmy 
Howard, among others. 

"Was I surprised he won? Yes. Did 
I think he could? Definitely, given the 
right conditions," said Johnson. "I 
picked him to finish in the top six, but 
in that kind of competition with the 
best jumpers in the country, anything is 
possible on a given day." 

"Brian won. The other guys just did 
not jump real well. Brian did and that's 
the difference," said Johnson. 

It shocked most experts. After earn- 
ing NCAA Indoor All-American hon- 
ors, Brown was redshirted during the 
outdoor season and had competed 
sparingly prior to the USA/Mobil meet. 

"With a limited number of competi- 
tions, it's been difficult for Brian to 
stay sharp. But we felt he was capable 
of going to Houston and finishing high 
enough to get some opportunities for 
international competition this summer," 
said Johnson. "He needs a full aca- 
demic year to graduate. He'll have his 
senior seasons indoors and outdoors 
next spring, get his degree and be sharp 
for the Goodwill Games." 

"Now everything has fallen into 
place. All the plans we made last 
August and September have worked 
out," said Johnson. "It's like a dream 
come true." 

Brown's jump was 1 1/4 inch better 
than his previous best of 7-6 that won 
the Southland Conference indoor cham- 
pionships in February. "He will go 
higher," said Johnson. 

"Brian's good jumping is still ahead 
of him. By no means has he reached his 

potential," the Demon head coach said. 
"Once he gets the strength to go harder 
off his plant foot, he's going higher." 

Building that strength is a long term 
project of the dynamic duo. Finding 
the proper technique to jump 7-7 1/4 
didn't take so long. 

"About three weeks ago, we changed 
his approach and it has become a lot 
more consistent. We've moved from 
an 86-foot approach to 101 feet, which 
helps him control his speed going into 
his plant at the bar for the jump," said 
Coach Johnson. "He never had a prob- 
lem with speed, just control. Now, as 
he gets stronger, he'll steadily keep 
going up." 

Brown's victory is the first individ- 
ual national championship won by a 
Northwestern track and field athlete. 
The 1981 Demon 400 meter relay 
team — Joe Delaney, Mark Duper, 
VictorOatis,andMarioJohnson — won 
the NCAA Division I championship. 

So as Superman keeps jumping 
skyscrapers of Metropolis in a single 
bound on the movie screens, so will 
Brian Brown of small Northwestern 
State University keep leaping away at 
world-class stature in the real world of 
track and field. 

Brian Brown, who de- 
feated Olympic high jumper 
Hollis Conway at a recent 
meet, travels to Birmingham, 
England, today, June 20, to 
represent the U.S. in a four- 
way international meet.

Sports Editor 

When the Southland Conference 
office announced the All-Academic 
roster for the 1988-89 athletic year it 
contained the names of IS athletes on 
the first-team from Northwestern State 
University, the most from any school 
in the league making NSU the unoffi- 
cial Southland Conference champions. 

The commissioner of the Southland 
Conference, Don Landry, said that 97 
athletes from the league's eight mem- 
ber institutions qualified for the first- 
team and honorable mention recogni- 
tionon the All-Academic teamsnamed 
for men's and women's basketball, 
track and field, tennis, baseball, and 
Softball. By placing 1 5 members to the 
first-team, NSU included four more 
selections than Southwest Texas State 
which finished in the second slot on the 

LASC... continued from 


Including first-team and honorable 
mention selections, four member 
schools — Northwestern, Southwest 
Texas State, Northeast Louisiana, and 
Texas- Arlington — had 15 athletes on 
the list 

To qualify for the All-Academic 
team, athletes had to post a minimum 
of a 3.0 grade point average as a starter 
or important reserve. Freshmen and 
first-year transfer students were not 

Eight of the 15 Northwestern ath- 
letes honored are seniors — Lori Mar- 
tin in women's basketball, Kenny 
Knotts and John Surane in baseball, 
Dawn Carlos, Tammy Mros, and Kel- 
lie Shotwell in softball, and Barbara 
Tons and Shayne Fitzwilliam in 
women's tennis. 

The Lady Demons softball team 

had four players honored — Carlos, 
Mros, Shotwell, and junior Jill Jen- 
kins. The SLC co-champion Lady 
Demon tennis team had three All- 
Academic members — Fitzwilliam, 
Tons, and sophomore Karen Patel. 

Other qualifiers on the SLC All- 
Academic team include NSU sopho- 
more golfer Dean Sterling, sophomores 
Chris Carter and Mark Troxler of the 
track team, along with junior Kate 
Christmas and sophomore Becky Ricks 
of the women's track team. 

So in closing, great job Northwest- 
em State. A place were excellence is 
achieved not only in the sports arena 
but alsb" in the depths of the class- 
rooms. Dr. Alost and his administra- 
tion desires a lot of the credit along 
with faculty and the students that sin- 
cerely care about success on and off 
the playing field. 

nity in a better way. Qualities such as 
leadership, enthusiasm, motivation and 
coordination were stressed. 

A total of 82 schools with a maxi- 
mum of 7 people per school partici- 
pated at the workshop. 

While on campus the main supervi- 
sion consisted of 24 adult supervisors 
*nd 25 junior counselors. The junior 
counselors had to apply and have been 
recommended by a counselor the year 
before along with a letter of recom- 
mendation. A staff was then set up to 
select the junior counselor. 

During the students stay at North- 
western, the girls lived at Sabine Hall 
attd the boys were at Bossier Hall. All 
•he students ate at the Student Union 
Cafeteria. Northwestern provided the 
facilities and any equipment needed 
throughout the week. 

Mr. Phil Gugliuzza, LASC coordi- 
"ator, stated, "We like being here [at 
Northwestern]. The atmosphere is 
friendly and the personnel is coopera- 
te. The facilities are excellent."

MIAMI (AP)— The sixth namec- 
tropical storm of the Atlantic season 
formed off the African coast Satur- 
day, as its predecessor, Erin, with- 
ered in cooler northern waters, fore- 
casters said. 

Felix, with maximum sustained 
winds of 40 mph, was expected to 
intensify as it moved westward, ac- 
cording to forecasters at the National 
Hurricane Center in suburban Coral 

At 5 p.m. CDT Saturday, Felix's 
center was estimated to be near 17.7 
north latitude and 24.1 west longi- 
tude, or about 90 miles northwest of 
Sal in the Cape Verde Islands, mov- 
ing westward at about 12 mph. 

Erin, which was downgraded from 
a hurricane on Saturday, was cen- 
tered Saturday evening near 52.5 
north latitude and 32.5 west longi- 
tude, or about 900 miles north of the 
Azores, and moving north-northeast 
near 35 mph. 

Students face registration frustration 


Staff Writer 

Northwestern State University held 
its fall registration in the StudentUnion 
Ballroom and the St. Denis computer 
center on Aug. 28-30. Long lines and 
mistakes on fee sheets proved to be the 
norms of the days. 

"The major concern I have with 
registration is that we are not allocat- 
ing enough days for the number of 
students we have paying fees and that 
preregistered students are coming at 
the same time as the students who did 
not preregister," said Carl Jones, con- 
troller and director of fiscal affairs. 
According to Jones , the current system 
of registration does not identify stu- 
dents who preregister and some stu- 
dents are going through the same lines 

Jones suggests allocating at least 
two days for preregistered students to 
pay fees. According to Jones, the cur- 
rent system can accommodate 1,000 
students a day, who have solved all fi- 
nancial problems and are going to pay 
with cash, check or promisary note. 

Jones also recognizes the problem 
with financial aid. Jones sites one of 
the main problems as the computer 
system, which takes one full day to 
update at student's account. Because 
of this, it takes a manual step to add the 
financial aid information which cre- 
ates a time element. "The university 
does have an obligation to improve our 
system. We need to look into the feasi- 
bility of our system allowing daily 
updates to reduce some of the manual 
transfer of information from the finan- 
cial aid office to the cashier's office," 
said Jones. 

According to Terry Faust, director 
of financial aid, there were three major 
categories of students who were caus- 
ing the traffic jam at the financial aid 
tables. "First, there were first-time stu- 
dents who decided at the last minute to 
attend Northwestern, and they had to 
get financial aid. The second group 
was continuing students who waiting 
until mid-summer to apply for finan- 
cial aid. The third group was students 
who receive scholarships that were not 
listed on the fee sheets," said Faust. 

Students should apply in January or 
February to receive financial aid for 
the following fall semester, said Faust. 
"We preach to the students to apply 
early for their Pell Grants and student 
loans. The students who applied early 
did not have to wait in the lines," said 

According to Faust, scholarships 
were not printed on the fee sheets 
because the Financial Aid Office did 
ndt receive the information to enter 
into the computer system. Therefore, 
these students had to stand in some 
lines twice. 

"I feel that Northwestern is very 
compassionate with students. We were 
able to work out an arrangement with 
most students so that they could regis- 
ter and I feel good about that," said 

Faust agrees, however, that changes 
must be made in order for the registra- 
tion process to flow more smoothly. "I 
think we need to get away from the tra- 
ditional registration process. I feel that 
we can change it. I would like to look 
at telephone registration," said Faust. 
"Students should not have to stand in 
line to register, not in present day 1 989 ." 

"Students need options," said Lynda 
Tabor, director of enrollment services 
and registrar. 

Although fall 1989 registration gave 
no special treatment was given to stu- 
dents who preregistered, Tabor encour- 
ages students to continue to preregis- 
ter. "We need to give rewards to stu- 
dents who preregister. Some alterna- 
tives that we can look at are mail-out 
billing with tentative fees and pay early 

registration," said Tabor. 

In addition to adding an "express 
lane checkout" for students who can 
go directly to the cashier and pay, 
Tabor suggests a payment plan for 
graduate students, also. 

Although Tabor, Faust and Jones 
do not offer "cure-all" solution to the 
registration problems, they all agree 
that improvements need to be made 
and they need to be made soon.

Student Support Services relocates 

10 a.m. Monday 

Student Support Services would like 
everyone to know that we have moved 
to the 4th floor (401) of Kyser Hall. 
We are really excited about our new 
location, since it centralizes several 
vital services provided for students. 

We are located next door to the 
Math Lab. The Testing Center has also 
relocated within the 40 1 office spaces. 

Our services continue to be free: tu- 
toring, academic and personal coun- 
seling, academic study skills work- 
shop, commuter service, babysitter 
referral service, seminars/workshops, 
stress management, and a support 
group for the non-traditional student 

Now that we are centrally located, 
our tutoring services will be conducted 
within our office area, as well as any 
seminars and workshops. The Aca- 
demic Study Skills Workshop will be 
presented every Thursday at 1 1:00a.m. 
It lasts one hour 1 5 minutes, and is pre- 
sented as a one time only learning 

session. A very informative video is 
shown, then each student is given indi- 
vidual time management advice and 

Our tutors are "strong"students aca- 
demically and must have made an "A" 
or"B"inthesubjecttobetutored. The 
main subjects tutored are : Chemistry, 
Science, History, Sociology, French, 
and Spanish. 

Our commuter services function is 
to match up commuters who are com- 
patible. Any interested students, drop 
by and fill out a commuter information 

The babysitter referral service con- 
sists of a compiled list of the local 
public day care services available. The 
list answers many of the questions 
moms want to know about day care 
centers; such as, do they provide 
snacks, or do they accept drop-ins? 
We will also keep a list of any students 
interested in babysitting. 

The support group for non-tradi- 
tional students is for any student who 
has spent some years after high school 
working on a job or at home, and is 
now attending college for the first time 
or as a returning student. Its purpose is 
to provide new friendships, and a sup- 
portive spirit for adjustment problems 
experienced by all non-traditional stu- 
dents. The group is a forum for en- 
couragement, sound advice, and shared 
experiences. The meeting will be held 
eveiy Tuesday at 11:00a.m. in 401 
Kyser. The first fall meeting will be 
held on September 5th and every non- 
traditional student is invited to attend. 
Coffee and doughnuts will be served. 

Student Support Services is open 
from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please 
drop by our offices if we can be of any 
service in any of these areas.

The University Police Department 
is responsible for the safety and secu- 
rity of the University community, but 
the department alone cannot accom- 
plish the task. Crime prevention and 
security awareness require the assis- 
tance and cooperation of every stu- 
dent, faculty, and staff member. As a 
resident of the University campus, you 
have a special relationship with the in- 
stitution. As a property owner, you 
have a monetary interest to protect. We 
encourage you to assist in the 
University's effort to provide a safe 
and secure environment for you. 

Northwestern State University is a 
community of approximately 7000 
person's on four campuses. As in all 
communities, public safety, crime, and 
. the loss of property occur daily. 

The following suggestions are of- 
fered for your safety and well being. 
Your cooperation will be beneficial to 
you and the University. 

Protect Your Room 
I. Lock your door-even if you are 
going to the bathroom or into the room 
C£&t door. A significant number of 
thefts from rooms occur while the 
resident is on the same floor, but just 
stepped out for "one minute." 

The risk is great. It takes less than 
10 seconds to walk into your room and 
steal something of value. 

2. Lock your door when you are asleep. 

3. Do not prop open outside building 
doors that are supposed to be locked. 
These doors are locked for your pro- 

4. Do not loan your keys to anyone- 
even a classmate or friend. They may 
not be as careful with them as you are 
and may lose or misplace them, just 
long enough for the wrong person to 
gain possession. 

5. Do not leave your keys lying around 
in public places or in your coat or 
jacket pocket when they are not being 

6. Carry your car keys on a separate 
ring from your room keys and other 
keys. Do not put your name and ad- 
dress on your key rings because it is 
as easy to use the key to steal as it is to 
return them. 

Protect Your Property 

1. Identify your valuables by engrav- 
ing them with your social security 
number. Engravers are available upon 
request from University Police. 

2. Personal property (purses, books, 
briefcases, calculators, etc.) should 
never be left unattended. 

3. Do not keep large amounts of cash 
in your room or on your person. You 
are encouraged to open a local bank ac- 

Protect Yourself 

1. Never walk alone at night. 

2. Refrain from takingshortcuts; walk 
in lighted and heavily traveled areas. 

3. Know where to go in case of emer- 
gency, (nearest telephone, police 
officer, open building, etc.) 

Help the University Protect You 

1. Watch for suspicious persons in and 
around University buildings and park- 
ing lots. Do not pursue them, but call 
University Police immediately. Also 
call University Police or your House 
Director if you enter your room and 
find a stranger inside, regardless of the 
story you are given. 

2. Door-to-door soliciting is not per- 
mitted in University residence halls. If 
a solicitor comes to your door report 
the person to University Police imme- 

3. Report all thefts and property losses 
to the University Police Department 

4. Be security conscious at all times.

Plans set for national rally for homeless 

Cm October 7, 1989, there will be 
a HOUSING NOW! rally in Wash- 
ington, D.C. , to demonstrate the need 
for affordable housing for the 3 mil- 
lion homeless in our county today. 

Current plans are underway to send 
40 people from the Shreveport- 
Natchitoches area to participate in 
the rally to be held on the Capital 

Dian and Fraser Snowden are 
serving as the Natchitoches coordi- 
nators for the rally. 

"The ultimate purpose of this 
peaceful demonstration is to send a 
clear message to Congress," accord- 
ing to the Snowdens. "End homeless 
in America, restore money to the 
federal housing budget, and build de- 
cent and affordable housing for all." 

At present there are perhaps 3 
million homeless people in the U.S. , 
many of them women and children. 

Over the next 15 to 20 years there 
may be as many as 20 million home- 
less. Currently, for every $44 spend 
on national defense only $1 goes to 

The local effort needs donations 
to defray the cost of the trip to Wash- 
ington. First Methodist Church of 
Shreveport will provide a bus for a 
fee of $2,000; food and other inci- 
dental expense will be a minimum of 

Persons wishing to donate non- 
perishable food items can contact 
Dian of Fraser Snowden at 3 52-9936. 
Donations should be send to: HOUS- 
ING NOW! c/o Christian Service, 
P.O. Box 21 , Shreveport, LA 7 1 161- 
0021. Checks should be make pay- 
able to HOUSING NOW! 

"We are especially interested in 
sending low-income and/or home- 
less people from the Natchitoches 

area as participants in what may turn 
our to be the largest demonstration in 
U.S. history. Anyone interested in 
going on the trip should contact us," 
noted the Snowdens. 

The current plan is for the bus to 
leave Shreveport on Thursday , Octo- 
ber 5, and to return late Sunday night 
or early Monday morning. 

"We are looking at an increas- 
ingly more serious social problem," 
they concluded. "A truly compas- 
sionate society cannot stand by and 
passively allow such massive human

Michigan college policy ruled illegal 

ANN ARBOR, Mich — A Uni- 
versity of Michigan policy aimed at 
cutting discriminatory harassmenton 
campus is unconstitutional, a federal 
judge ruled. 

Uneversity officials proposed the 
policy lase year after assorted racist 
acts, including a widely publicized 
incident in which a student disc jockey 
on a campus radio show allowed a 
caller to tell anti -black jokes. 

U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn 
ruled Friday that the policy violates 
freedom of speech and was so vague 
that"persons of commen intelligence 
must guess at it's meaning." 

The ruling likely will have a na- 

tional significance, said Howard 
Simon, Executive director of the 
American Civil Liberties Union in 
Michigan, which challanged the 
policy on behalf of an unidentified 
Michigan student. 

"Universities from Duke to Stan- 
ford and Wisconsin and in between 
are faced with these same kinds of 
problems and are considering similar 
policies to the University of Michi- 
gan," Simon said. 

The policy barred harassment or 
discrimination based on race, ethnic- 
ity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, 
creed, national origin, ancestry, age, 
marital status, handicap, or Viet- 

nam-veteran status. The ACLU did 
not challange a part of the policy that 
bars physical acts of harassment. 

"The policy is clearly well-inten- 
tioned - the university needs to ad- 
dress problems of harmful racism on 
campus - but the method by which 
they chose to so assaults the prin- 
ciples of free speech and freedom of 
expression," Simon said. 

"The judge has forced them to go 
back to the drawing board and de- 
velop a policy that doesn't violate 
free speech but protects students from 
harassment," he said. "The judge 
performed a public service." 

The university's general coun- 

sel, Elsa Kircher Cole, said she was 
disappointed by the ruling. 

"We had very carefully crafted a 
policy that would recognize First Am- 
mendment rights of students while 
addressing the very serious problems 
of racial and sexual harrassment on 
campus," Cole said. 

Cole said university had begun 
reviewing the policy before Cohn 
held a hearing on it Friday, and now 
will decide whether to rewrite it or 
appeal the judge's ruling.

Over 100 women pledge allegiance to campus Greeks 

Staff Writer

"They are all great, I just don't know 
what sorority I like." "What if they 
"What to do?" 

If these statements sound familiar, 
you know that you were probably talk- 
ing to one of the 132 rushees that went 
through^IHeardlt Through TheGrape- 
yine" Fall Rush '89. 

Fall Rush '89 started Thursday, Au- 
gust 17 when the rushees moved into 
the dorms. The rushees had orientation 
that evening and divided into four 
groups with an all Greek Mixer later 
that night. Friday the rushees went to 
Open House at the sorority houses. 
Saturday, mini-themes were held at 
the sorority houses. Phi Mu's mini 
theme was Hoe Down, S igma Kappa' s 
Sigma' s mini theme was Camp Sigma. 
Sunday, the <t>M's held their Chorus 
Line theme party, IK held their new 
party: Slumber Party, and IZZ held 
their Roaring 20's theme party. Prefer- 
ential Tea was on Monday night in 
which the rushees were invited to go to 
only two of the three sorority houses. 
After they were finished with Pref Tea, 
the rushees went to sign their bids as to 
which sorority they wanted. 

Tuesday afternoon everyone found 
out which sorority the rushees would 
pledge. Forty-three ladies pledged Phi 
Mu. They are: Jennifer Armand, Beth 
JJeadle, Lisa Beaird, Tammy Bums u 

Tamara Bush, Melissa Dawn Cox, 
Jacquelin Cutler, Leigh Dazzio, Holly 
Delrie, Kimberly Dernier, Tina Foret, 
Holly Gauthier, Lisa Giddens, De Anna 
Gonzales, Tanya Greer, Suzette Guil- 
lot, Deanna Hanson, Charla Haw- 
thorne, Cathy Huey , and Marie Hughes. 

Also'pledging Phi Mu were Christy 
Irwin, Julie Jarvis, Jennifer Johnson, 
Anissa Lewis, Stacy Long, Donna 
McClary, Pam Miller, Keri Moses. 
Kristi Motter, Lauren Oberle, Amanda 
Oswalt, Kathryn Parish, Theresa 
Parker.EmilyRobinson.Jennifer Sally, 
Christie Smith, Hanna Smith, Kimen 
Stewart, Michele Stoma, Angelique 
Thibodeaux, Andrea Webber, and 
Bridget Wicoxen. 

Marlene Canfield, Phi Mu presi- 
dent, said, "Panhellenic was well or- 
ganized, and therefore allowed North- 
western to have a fantastic Rush. My 
only regret is that each sorority didn't 
receive the same amount of girls, due 
to the quota number, and that left many 
girls disappointed. Rush was a lot of 
hard work but was worth every minute 
of it. Thank you rushees, Panhellenic, 
alumni, and collegiate members for 
making it a success." 

Marilyn Dranguet, d>M Rush chair- 
man, said, "The girls that went through 
Rush were the most outstanding group 
since I've been at Northwestern. We 
think our Phi's are the best girls on 
campus, and we know they will serve 
with distinction and be a credit to our 
sorority and the school." 

Sigma Kappa pledged 20 ladies. 
They are: Kristina Aaron, Kimberly 
Alewyne, Tracy Anderson, Mary Blan- 
chard, Rebecca Blanchard, Michelle 
Caskey, Dawn Collins, Amy Fallis, 
Sherry LaFauci, Haley LeJune, Jill 
Manuel, Tammie Moreau, Jennifer 
Poe, Heather Rose, Gwen Ruthkow- 
ski, Colleen Timmofis, Sandra Toledo, 
Faye Wood, Shannon Zachariah, and 
Jennifer Montrose. 

Rush co-chairman for S igma Kappa, 
Karen Cresap, said, "I was really ex- 
cited on how it went We got some 
fabulous pledges. I was really pleased. 
Rush developed a lot of unity and sis- 
terhood this year within our sorority." 

Stacie Cleveland, IK president, 
said, "It went really well. I was pleased 
with the outcome. I hope that we have 
more rushees next year, but other than 
that, it went really well. 

Sigma Sigma Sigma pledged 43 
ladies. They are: Renee Armour, 
Monique Auzenne, Colette Bergeron, 
Leslie Blake, Brenda Bohrer, Babette 
Brown, Kandi Carter, Eve Cox, Cindy 
Cranford, Lola Davis, Michelle Davis, 
Allison Elkins, Darcy Fandrich, Ash- 
ley Faust, Christine Floyd, Stephanie 
George, Ann Giffin, Becky Graham, 
Sarah Hooker, Leanne Howard, Angie 
Johnson, and Helen Kennedy. 

Also pledging XXX were Leah 
sey, Lisa Lumpkins, Dawn Lund, 
Nancy Manning, Barbara Martin, 
Miriam McDaniel, Cynthia Morrison, 

Lacey Pierce, Valerie Reed, Malana 
Robinson, Nancy Roy, Rhonda Rube, 
Diane Talbot, Melissa Terriot, Amy 
Tibault, Melissa Warner, Kelli Weaver, 
Beth Weidel, Terra Williams, Sonja 
Wilson, and Shannon Youngblood. 

Gretchen Giering, Tri-S igma presi- 
dent, said, "I was a little disappointed 
with the number of girls that signed up 
forrush. As the week went on and I met 
the rushees, I realized their potential 
ability of becoming an asset to Greek 
life. I am very pleased with the out- 
come of rush and would like to thank 
Panhellenic for a wonderful job." 

£££ Rush chairman Laurie 
LeBlanc, said "Although the number 
of girls going through Rush was con- 
siderably less than what we were pre- 
pared for, I found the gfloup a pleasure 
to rush. Hopefully the conflicts that 
arose concerning Panhellenic rules will 
be absent from Rush next year." 

Panhellenic advisor, Reatha Cole, 
said, "Cindy Wilson, Panhellenic presi- 
dent, had a lot to do do with the success 
that we had this during Rush. Cindy, 
Panhellenic, and the Rho Chi's did a 
great job of keeping things organized. 
With 199 rushees going through Rush 
in '87, 189 in '88 and only 132 this 
year, I feel that the reason for the low 
number from enrollment is due to the 

Author to speak at Orientation

advantage of their college careers, 
Northwestern has scheduled Dr. 
Adele Scheele, author of Making

NSU enacts state alcohol policy 

Staff Writer 

Northwestern is bringing all poli- 
cies that relate to alcohol into compli- 
ance with Louisiana law. Louisiana 
statutes make it illegal for anyone over 
18 but under 21 to purchase, possess, 
or consume any alcoholic beverage, 
but there is no law prohibiting alcohol 
sales to anyone over 1 8. Thus vendors 
are required by Louisiana law only to 
restrict alcoholic sales to those persons 

older than 18 even though it is not 
lawful for those aged between 18 and 
21 to purchase alcohol. 

However, as Mr. Carl Henry, Di- 
rector of Student Activities, notes, 
"NSU is an educational institution, not 
a private business. We cannot turn our 
heads and tell students to not obey the 
laws of the state. NSU is also a public 
institution, not a private club." All or- 
ganizations chartered through NSU and 
all functions held on school (public)

When you spend four years becoming a 
leader, it shows. And that's what Army ROTC 
is all about. 

Fact is, when you graduate from college 
with a Lieutenant's gold bar, you'll bring more 
than a degree and a better resume to a job 
interview. You'll bring confidence. and the 
knowledge that you've done something that 
will make you a desirable candidate in the job 
market. A competitive edge few people your 
age have. Something you can be proud of. 

So take a good look at Army ROTC. It just 
might help potential employers take a good 
look at you.

Football season to 
start this weekend 

Sports Editor 

The Northwestern State Demons 
will take the field this Saturday night 
in hopes of starting down another 
rough and rugged road to the South- 
land Conference Championship. 
Standing in the way will be every- 
thing from Indians, to Cowboys, and 
even a bunch of Lumberjacks from 
Stephen F. Austin. To add to the 
scenario of problems you lose the 
flashy running of Paul Frazier and 
the world-class receiving of Floyd 
Turner. Then losing names like 
Sibley, Parker, Lewis, Newstrom, and 
Thissel on defense alone. Doubts 
begin to enter your thoughts after you 
consider all of this. 

But lay the doubts aside and place 
your faith in the coaching ability of 
NSU head coach Sam Goodwin. The 
cast has definitely changed, but with 
37 returning lettermen, Goodwin 
firmly believes the 1989 Demons can 
defend the Southland Conference 
crown and certainly will contend for 
a second straight I-AA playoff berth. 

"There's no question we're ca- 
pable of defending the conference 
championship if everything falls into 
place," says Goodwin. "We feel the 
potential is there.*' 

That outlook is predicted on what 
should be a stout Demon defense and 
a potentially explosive offense led by 
senior quarterback Scott Stoker. 

Stoker will enter the season as 
fourth on the all-time leading passing 
list with 2,976 yards in regular sea- 
son play needing only 992 yards to 
surpass Wayne Van as career passing 
king. The 5-7, 161 lb Alexandria 
native has bench-pressed 355 pounds 
this summer during daily six hour 
workouts and will provide a power- 
ful arm to spearhead the Demon at- 

Two importantoffensivekeys will 
be the play of wide receiver Al 
Edwards and tailback Kenneth 

Dewitt Edwards hauled in 34 passes 
for 474 yards last season and will be 
Stoker's primary receiver. DeWitt, 
who suffered from injuries in his right 
arm during his junior campaign, will 
return with Ail-American speed in 
the Demon backfield. Even with the 
injuries DeWitt finished second on 
the team with 460 yards. 

Defensive tackle Mitch Rowe will 
anchor the defensive side after mak- 
ing 100 tackles last year and was the 
third-leading tackier behind gradu- 
ated linebackers Leonard Parker and 
Freddie Wallace. 

Strong safety Dennis Smith will 
led a corps of hard-hitting rockets in 
the secondary. Also add in David 
Chitman and Randy Hilliard in at the 
corners, along with Steve Compton 
at the other safety slot and get come 
out with a wide receiver wrecking 
crew in the secondary. No one in 
their right mind will enter into the 
Demon secondary, or should I say no 
one will leave the game after playing 
these guys with a right mind left 

The linebacker group will be solid 
with Tracy Palmer, Randolph Hayes, 
and Andre Carron. They all made 
impressive waves in spring practices. 

Coach Goodwin will take this act 
on the road this Saturday night to 
begin the first of two away games to 
start the season. The Demons oppo- 
nent this Saturday night will be the 
Bears of Southwest Missouri State. 
Last year the Demons defeated the 
Bears 24-8 to kick-off the 1988 sea- 
son. Game time will be set for 7:00 
p.m. at Briggs Stadium on the cam- 
pus of Southwest Missouri State on 
the omniturf surface. Theomniturfis 
a sand based surface that is solid 
foundation to resist the problem of 
slipping like on normal artificial turf. 

The Demons could be ready for an 
encore performance with some men 
with big hearts and a head coach that 
knows how to win.

Demons to play in national spotlight 






























n State's home football game with 
ickson State has been moved to 
tiursday, Nov. 9, and will be tele- 
sed nationally by ESPN 

Northwestern athletic director 
ynes Hildebrand made that announce- 
ent Wednesday along with Jackson 
tate athletic director Dr. Howard 
avis, the ESPN telecast is contingent 
pon a routine inspection of 12-year- 
ld Turpin Stadium by network per- 
)nnel next Tuesday, Hildebrand said. 

The game, originally scheduled for 
aturday, Nov. 11, pits the defending 
jampionsof the Southland and South- 
pcstem Athletic conferences. It is one 
f only three regular-season NCAA 
ijvision I-AA contests included on 
SPN's college football schedule. 

ESPN will also televise Middle 
ennessee State at Georgia Southern 
n Sept. 21 and Montana at Idaho on 
j>pt 28. 

1 "It'sanextremehonorforourteam, 
ur coaching staff and our university," 
taid Hildebrand. "Being selected for 
natonally-televised game is the result 

of the success we've had under Coach 
Sam Goodwin, the number of profes- 
sional players we've produce and the 
respect our program has earned." 

Kickoff for the Nov. 9 game will be 
7 p.m. in Turpin Stadium. It will be the 
first regular-season national television 
exposure for a Southland Conference 
member since 1983. 

"Getting a Southland Conference 
member on ESPN helps meet a long- 
standing goal — that of national expo- 
sure for our football teams," said Don 
Landry, the SLC commissioner. "The 
selection of Northwestern State for a 
Thersday night game is an indication 
that our reputation as one of die best I- 
AA conferences in the country is grow- 

The Southland champion has played 
for the I-AA national championship in 
three of the last five years. The SLC 
was one of the three leagues to place 
three teams in last year's. 16- team play- 
off bracket. 

Goodwin, the 1988 SLC Coach of 
the Year, was elated at the news. 

"Getting our first national TV ex- 

posure is exciting for the whole North- 
western community," he said. "It's 
going to be a great ballgame and the 
best thing is it's right here in Natchito- 

Northwestern, 10-3 last year, and 
Jackson State, 8-1-2, are ranked in the 
NCAA's pre-season poll. The De- 
mons were rated eighth, where they 
finished last season, and the Tigers tied 
for sixth after finishing fifth in 1988's 
final poll. 

The teams have split their games in 
the last two seasons. Northwestern 
wonat home 26-24 in 1987 and Jackson 
State snapped a 9-game win streak last 
year with a 21-16 decision. 

Both programs have big impacts in 
professional football Jackson State has 
sent more than 70 players to the Na- 
tional Football League, headlined by 
all-time rushing leader Walter Payton 
of the Chicago Bears.

Goodwin proud of team's national rank 

NATCHITOCHES —It was good 
to see his Northwestern State football 
team ranked eighth in the NCAA'S 
preseason I-AA Top 20 poll, Coach 
Sam Goodwin said last week. 

But it was imposing to see four of 
the Demon's 1989 opponents also 
ranked, he said. 

North Texas is No. 3, Jackson State 
is ranked sixth, southwest Missouri 
State is 10th and Stephen F. Austin is 

NO. 17 in the NCAA Top 20. 

"If we win them all, there won't be 
any doubt We should be NO. 1," said 

Northwestern returns 36 lettermen 
from last year's 10-3 Southland Con- 
ference champions. The Demons fin- 
ished the regular season rated eighth 
and reached the I-AA playoff quarter- 

"Getting ranked eighth is a good 

start," said Goodwin. "You like to be 
in the poll to start the season. You 
know you have to go out and prove it" 

The Demons open their season Sept. 
2 at Southwest Missouri State, the 
Bears are the preseason favorites to 
win the Gateway Conference title. 

Northwestern plays host on Oct 3 
to North Texas and welcomes Jackson 
State Nov. 11. The Demons end the 
regular season at home on Nov. 18 
against Stephen F. Austin.

We're lucky that we're able to replace 
Mona with one of the greatest players 
in the history of Lady Demon basket- 

Thompson, 24, was co-head coach 
of the Shreveport 15-and-under girls 
team which finished as national run- 
ner-up last month in a 44-team AAU 
tournament. She worked last year as 
head girls basketball coach at St, Mary's 
High School in Natchitoches and served 
as a graduate assistant coach at North- 
western in the 1986-87 season when 
the Lady Demons went 19-8. 

"She'll do a good job with every 
aspect of the program," said Smith, 
"because she knows how we want 
things done. She pretty much ran our 
offense from the floor in her senior 
year and we went 25-6 and finished as 
the WNIT runner-ups. She's a great 

"The thing that makes her great is 
thatshe'ssohighlycompetitive. That's 
a quality that will rub off on our young 
players and help continue the success 
we've had," said Smith, who is 38-20 
in two years as head coach after help- 
ing the Lady Demons toal35-56mark 
in eight years as assistant coach. 

Thompson'sNo. 25 jersey is one of 
only two numbers retired by the Lady 
demon program. She was a second- 
team Ail-American on the Women's 
Basketball News Service listing fol- 
lowing her senior season (83.4) and 
average 16 points and eight assists per 

She holds Lady Demon records for 
most assists in a game (19) and career 
(697) and for best free throw percent- 
age in a season (83.4) and career (8 1 .3). 
Thompson started every game during 
her four-year, 109-game Northwest- 
em career. 

Martin came to Northwestern when 
Smith was named head coach in 1987. 
She was 266-91 (74.6 percent) in 11 
years as head coach at Natchitoches

Maggio head coach of ladies' track team 

track and field coach Chris Maggio has 
been named the first head women's 
track and field coach at Northwestern 
State, Athletic Director Tynes Hilde- 
brand announced Friday. 

Maggio will oversee the women's 
program and will also assist head track 
and field coach Leon Johnson with 
coaching the Demon men, said Hilde- 

Maggio, a former "Mr. NSU" and 
valedictorian of his 1985 Northwest- 
em graduating class, is beginning his 
second year on the NSU athletic staff. 

"It hasn't taken Chris long to im- 
press us with his ability , energy and 

School. In 1987 he served as head 
track and field coach for a team that 
finished second in the class A state 

Maggio, 25, was a four-year letter- 
men in track and cross country while at 
NSU making the Gulf Star Conference 
All-Academic team twice. He also 
served as president of Kappa Alpha 
fraternity and Phi Epsilon Kappa, the 
physical education fraternity. 

He has signed some of Louisiana's 
better female track and field athletes 
this year but knows building the pro- 
gram will take time. 

"We've had some good individual 
performers in the past, but we want to 

achievements," said Hildebrand. "He's 
done an exceptional job in the past 
year. We believe putting him in charge 
of our women's track and field pro- 
gram will help it develop along the 
path we have in mind." 

"We want to establish the program 
as one that's competitive for the South- 
land Conference championship, and 
that's a challenge." said Maggio. 
"We'll try to get our women's track 
program the same kind of national- 
caliber respect that our men's program 
has earned through the year's." 

Maggio, a Natchitoches native, 
joined Northwestern 's athletic staff 
tfter two years at St Mary's High 

build a team concept so we can com- takes time, but I like the direction our 
pete for the conference tide he said, administration is going to take with 
"That won't happen immediately. It track and field." 

MVP Rayford off to Belgium 

a first-team All- Southland Confer- 
ence basketball player last year for 
NSU, has signed a one-year contract to 
play professionally in Belgium. 

Rayford, a 6-7, 220 pound forward 
from Quitman, Ga., will play for the 
Charleroi, Belgium team in a league 
involving teams in Belgium andFrance. 
The teams play an 80-game schedule, 

says Rayford, who was a seventh-round 
draft pick of the Continental Basket- 
ball Association's Sioux Falls (S.D.) 
Sky Force last month. 

"It's a good deal," said Rayford. 
"I'd like to play over here for a year 
and then try to make an NBA team. I 
think this year will help me develop." 

Rayford averaged 20.4 points and 
8.2 rebounds for the Demons last sea- 

son, leading the Southland Conference 
in scoring. He was a second- team All- 
Louisiana selection and was the North 
Team's MVP in the Louisiana Asso- 
ciation of Coaches' All-Star game, 
scoring 23 points and getting 13 re- 

He finished his NSU career with 
1,129 points in three seasons, ranking 
14th all-time. He was 15th on the all- 
time rebounding list with 522.

Scholarship Auction '89 nets over $27,000 in funds 



rff Writer 

With the state's economy on the 
cline and Northwestern 's recruit- 
g drive going up, Gregory Burke, 
d of NSU's Booster Club, de- 
r]ed something must be done. That 
unething was Scholarship Auction 
9. This took place on Friday night 
ginning at 4:00 with the auction 
(ginning at 7:30 in Prather Coli- 
iU m. Approximately 350 people 
owed up for the interesting items 


that were to be auctioned. 

"We don't give as many scholar- 
ships as we can give, and it's all 
because of the budget" This causes, 
according to Burke, a shortcoming in 
NSU's athletic recruiting. 

"We decided to set up an endow- 
ment fund to combat this. They're 
common at other universities around 
the country. Whatever money is made 
is put into a low-risk investment and 
keeps adding on as more money 
comes in. The principle (the amount 

invested) is never touched, the only 
money used is the interest." Which, 
says Burke, is between 8 and 10 %. 

It is felt that in past years this sort 
of fund was optional, but with budget 
cuts, it is now obligatory. As any- 
thing would, the Scholarship Auc- 
tion started small. The estimated net 
is between $27,000 - 530,000. "It's 
small now, but the rationalization for 
it is: 'Just think of what it would be if 
it were started 10 years ago!'" 
The general consensus was that, 

yes, the first Scholarship A uction was 
a success. "It was very nice and ev- 
eryone really enjoyed it," says Melissa 
Cox, who assisted in catering the 
event At 560 per couple and $30 per 
person, ARA went all out. 

"The concern was to have a fun- 
filled evening from the start," re- 
members Burke. Beginning with 
valet parking and waitresses serving 
hors d'oeuvres, the guests were en- 
tertained by a jazz band during the 
social and piano music during the

Rep. Theatre cancels 

aff Writer 

This summer, the Louisiana Rep- 
tory Theatre canceled its 1989 
ison because of budget deficit from 
!t year's season and cutbacks by 

The original agreement between 
suniversity and the theatre involved 
50,000. These monies were to be 
sed in equal parts by the Louisiana 

Repertory theatre, NSU, and ticket 
sales. Additionally, housing for the 
company was to be provided by the 
school and theatre workshops were 
to be offered to students by the com- 

Because of enrollment changes, 
the housing part of the original agree- 
ment could not be kept. Finances 
were the deciding factor in the deci- 
sion to cancel this season.

President outlines SGA goals 

Laura Willis 
SGA President 

Staff Writer 

"We want to renew confidence in 
the StudentGovernment Association 
through student awareness of the 
SG A' s existence and its role on cam- 
pus," said Laura Willis, Student 
Government Association president 
for the 1989-90 term. 

Willis, a Winnfield native major- 
ing in marketing, believes that the 
visibility of the SGA and their role 
on campus is paramount to the suc- 
cess of the SGA. 

"The premier goal of the SGA for 
the 1989-90 school year is to 
straighten out the organization inter- 
nally. This task will consist of strict 
monitoring of senate working hours, 
a more complete file of minutes from 

weekly meetings, and the accessibil- 
ity of senators in the office between 
9:00am and 4:30pm," said Willis. 

She also contends that she has a 
very strong executive council. "Part 
of our job description is to be a link 
between the students and the admini- 
stration. I feel that each of our execu- 
tives possess that quality," said Willis. 
"When someone works for SGA it 
isn't an addition to a resume only, 
they will have done something," she 

The greatest obstacle Willis feels 
she has to conquer is apathy. She 
thinks that a strong communicative 
network between students, and the 
SGA board, will combat this prob- 

The Student Government Asso- 

ciation performs of number of serv- 
ices for the student body. The pro- 
duction of State Fair, campus elec- 
tions, the student loan service, com- 
plaint committee for housing and food 
service, and the student directory, are 
all under the auspices of the Student 
Government Association. 

In addition, Shelly Benson, sopho- 
more senator at large, has proposed 
the placement of ice machines in the 
dormitories to accomodate the stu- 

"Under the leadership of Laura 
Willis," said Karen Engeron, treas- 
urer, "the SGA will perform a vital 
service to both students and admini- 
stration. Hopefully the students will 
take advantage of the opportunities 
that the SGA has to offer."

Local performance of "Steel Magnolias" cast 

Staff Writer 

Auditions were held last Tuesday 
for an October 1 thru the 1 4 produc- 
tion of Steel Magnolias , a play set in 
Natchitoches and written by Natchi- 
toches native Robert Harling. A con- 
temporary drama about a woman's 
fight with diabetes, Steel Magnolias 
is based on events in Harling's life, 
and his sister Susan' s similar struggle. 

Vicki Parrish, the director of the 
NSU production, said.'Tt is certainly 
a play about strong women and un- 
conditional is his (Harling's) 

conception of the Southern women 
he has known." 

"It really paints a very positive 
picture", said Kelly Graham, who 
will play M'Lynn Eatenton."It's the 
first play I've ever read that doesn't 
make Southern women look stupid 
and shallow." 

In reference to the auditions, 
Mrs.Parrish said, "We were very 
pleased with the turnout and the cali- 
ber of talent. We regret that there are 
no male roles in Steel Magnolias ,but 
we invite both men and women to the 
October 16 auditions for a produc- 

tion of Thornton Wilder's Our Town. 

Of the many women who audi- 
tioned Tuesday, six were selected 
who will make up the entire cast: 
Melissa Trumble will play Truvy 
Jones, the middle-aged proprietor of 
a garage beauty shop; Lola Davis 
will play Annelle, a local girl stranded 
by her husband; Helen Farrar will 
play Clairee Belcher, widow of the 
former mayor and grand dame of the 
town; Kelly Graham will play 
M'Lynn Eatenton, a very prominent 
society and career woman; Patty 

Breckenridge will play Shelby Ea- 
ton-Latcherie, daughter of M'Lynn; 
and Leah Luckett-McGee will play 
Ouiser Boudreaux, a coarse but lov- 
ing eccentric. 

The play and seating will be on the 
main stage of the A.A. Fredericks 
Creative And Performing Arts Cen- 
ter. A special dress rehearsal will be 
held October 9 at 8:00 p.m., and will 
be open to the faculty of NSU. The 
play will be open to the public Octo- 
ber 10-14, with all performances 
starting at 8:00 p.m.

of witnessing for the one-too-many* 
time, an American institution: the

Perhaps pageants like this aren't 
so bad. Yearly, the Miss America 
Pageant system awards over a mil- 
lion dollars in scholarships to over 
10,000 girls, and promotes, make me 
ill, fellowship among women. I 
learned about the people and busi- 
nesses behind these ordeals, and found 
out that these girls take this very 
seriously. They work hard at what 
they do, mastering pageant tactics 
and strategies, and many do it quite 
well. Some of them are even what 
you could call professional pagean- 
teers. I overheard the girls talking 
about someone named Gretchen 
Carlson, and naively asked who she 
was; . . .the favorite? . . .a dark horse? 
...perhaps even a contestant known 
for her haughty and aloof disposi- 
tion? "Youdon'tknowwhoGretchen

The pageant soon underway, my 
friend and I were rooting for contest- 
ant number four, truly the most de- 
serving, unfortunately not the victor. 
The evening gown competition was 
first. This division also included a 
question and answer segment Each 
of the contestants were posed a dif- 
ferent question and given a minute 
and a half in which to answer. When 
asked "As a fashion design major 
who are your favorite designers?" 
onecontestant replied "Bill Blass and 
Liz Claiborne." and exited abruptly, 
leaving the audience clueless as to 
why. Another contestant was asked 
"Why should you be the next Miss 
Louisiana SuperDerby Festival?" she 

how many of these girls share the 
same hobbies. They include: read- 
ing, shopping, meeting new people, 
helping the under-priveledged, and, 
for the more inventive ones, "speak- 
ing Hebrew," and "teaching my 
Yorkshire terrier, Lady Anne, new 
tricks." What ever happened to de- 
copage or ceramics? I have also 
surmised, that by the year 2000, 
Louisiana is destined be a virtual 
cornucopia of female lawyers who 
were once the captain of their high 
school dance lines, all presumably, 
retaining their big hair. This is in- 
deed to happen unless the Louisiana 
Bar Association passes their legisla-

America is big. Knowing where 
America is (a frighteningly high 
percentage of your fellow country- 
men can not point to the USA on a 
map), I was already aware that 
America is quite big. The reality of 
its size blew my mind. 

I was on the airplane, exhausted 
and anxious, trying to ignore the fact 
that the wing outside my window 
was shaking violently. The food was 
unappetizing, and a child was crying 

While the other passengers 
watched boring movies, I watched 
the world go by — literally. We had 
already flown over settlements on the 
Southern tip of Greenland which 
looked so tiny from 30,000 feet, that 
I was unsure whether they were not 
simply scraps of rock and snow. 

We had also flown over single 
icebergs, which I could see stretched 
for miles and miles under the Atlan- 
tic Ocean. Their tips were of the 
purest white, and as the sun reflected 
its blinding light from them, I esti- 
mated that the tips alone, barely vis- 

ible from such a height, must have 
been the size of football stadiums. 

I thought that was pretty big. I 
thought the Atlantic was pretty big. 
But America is as wide as the Atlan- 
tic. I became even more aware of the 
vastness of this continent as we flew 
over Lake Superior. I looked at it on 
the map. I looked at England on the 
map. Lake Superior is as big as 
England. You have a lake the size of 
my country — that's intimidating. 

a relief to occasionally get away from 
the constant speed and energy of a 
cosmopolitan city such as London, 
New York, Los Angeles or Paris. 

There's a buzz in those cities, 
particularly on Monday mornings and 
Saturday nights, which one can al- 
most smell and taste. It's an excite- 
ment which a lot of city dwellers feel, 
caused by the awareness that they are 
living in one of the planet's vortexes,

Now I understand why the Ameri- 
can consciousness views enormous 
projects as feasible. Only people 
from such a vast country would dare 
to dream of putting man on the moon, 
a satellite into another solar system - 
and make their dreams come true. 

Natchitoches, on the other hand, 
is small. Having discovered that 
America is big, I assumed that even 
your smallest villages were the same 
size as European cities. 

However, please don't think I'm 
criticizing Nachy-Tachy, as I would 
affectionately call it in England, be- 
fore I knew how to pronounce it It's 

culture from around the globe, and 
then disseminates it to the rest of the 
country's population. 

Living in it, though, is exhausting 
sometimes, and while a lot of country 
mice dream of the bright lights of the 
big cities, the town mice long for a 
place like Natchitoches. The friend- 
liness of its inhabitants is beautiful 
and sincere, while the speed of life 
inspires reflection and tranquility. 

I came to Natchitoches to learn 
something about the 'real' America — 
how average Americans live. While 
it's arguable whether Natchitoches is 
a good example of the real America, 

Skin-tight dance line outfits too revealing for some 

Dear Editor, 

Is the paint on the Mona Lisa 
thicker than a layer of Spandex? How 
about the average coat of housepaint? 

I think that more than one of those 
who attended the orientation session 
for Freshmen and transfer students 
on August 21 would say that paint is 
thicker than Spandex. Those folks 
received an interesting demonstra- 
tion of the point 

This is the third such orientation 
meeting I have endured, but is the 
first at which I have been provided 
entertainment. The entertainment 
turned out to be, among other spec- 
tacles intended to enhance school 
spirit, a performance by the NSU 

Demon Dazzlers, a campus dance 

Many of you have probably seen 
the Demon Dazzlers perform, but I 
had not, and I did not realize that they 
perform naked. Now I'm sure that 
some of you would say, "Oh, but they 
aren't naked; they have those purple 
Spandex bodysuit things on." To this 
I say, "Bah." 

As I pointed out, a layer of paint is 
probably thicker than Spandex, and I 
doubt that paint clings any more 
firmly. Now if I stripped naked, 
painted myself purple and walked 
around campus, I suspect that the 
police would come arrest me for it. I 
daresay that most of you would agree 

that they would be perfectly justified 
in doing so. 

At the orientation meeting, though, 
I noticed a conspicuous absence of 
police, except perhaps as spectators. 
This being the case, I can only con- 
clude that the university administra- 
tion does not share my definition of 

Or maybe my definition is not in 
dispute at all. Perhaps the majority of 
the audience would agree, if they 
thought about it and were honest, that 
the Demon Dazzlers were just as 
naked as I would be if I stripped and 
painted myself purple. 

However, maybe they feel that, 
where I would be nothing if not ob- 

scene in that condition, those pretty 
young women dancing onstage were 

Perhaps all those people really differ 
with meonly in the belief that there is 
nothing wrong with having naked 
young women dance onstage for the 
entertainment of college students. 

They are, of course, entitled to 
their opinions. But I must ask: why 
were we not informed that entertain- 
ment would be provided which some 
ofusmightfindobjectionable? Surely 
the organizers of the show are not 
ignorant that some people hold reli- 
gious and/or moral beliefs which 
argue against strip shows, even when 
they are billed as pep rallies.

Registration hassles should be solved before January 

Dear Editor, 

It certainly didn't take writing 
the article "Students face registra- 
tion frustration" last week for me to 
realize that Northwestern has many 
problems with registration. I per- 
sonally dealt with a three-hour or- 
deal at the Student Union when I 
registered. I know that I am not the 
only student who had to go through 
this. This year's registration was a 
terrible way to begin the new school 

Northwestern needs to come up 
with some solutions now, hopefully 
before next January. Some of the 
problems that caused students to wait 
were due to a total lack of communi- 
cation and efficiency of office work- 
ers. For example, someone forgot to 
make sure that scholarships were 
printed on fee sheets. This one "little 
mistake" caused many students an 
unnecessary wait in the financial 
aid line. 

Although the little mistakes need 

to be corrected, the whole registra- 
tion process needs to be overhauled. 
Because of Northwestern 's fast- 
paced growth, the registration proc- 
ess is far behind the times. NSU 
needs to be prepared for change. 

The alphabetized system of reg- 
istration and paying fees was a total 
joke, as was trying to allow every 
student to register in three days. 
According to Carl Jones, controller 
and director of fiscal affairs, the cur- 
rent system can accommodate 1 ,000 

students a day, who have solved all 
financial problems and are going to 
pay with cash, check or promisary 
note. Well, it doesn't take a genius 
to figure out that there are more than 
3,000 students at Northwestern and 
three days will not be sufficient 
enough time for the 3,000 plus stu-

— teautification of bridge causes conflicts 

- D 

^■ff Writer 
-Many students may have noticed 
•£ returning to school the intense 
gestion of traffic at the old bridge. 
s was due to the closing of the 
pch Street bridge. However, this 
ation ended on Thursday, August 
around noon, when the bridge 
>ened after being closed approxi- 
ely three weeks. The closing of 
bridge inconvenienced many area 

"I appreciate the patience of the 
;ens of Natchitoches and of the 
hh western students for putting up 
h the delay of the Church Street 
'ige. When completed it will be an 
% to the city and to its rich heri- 
said Mayor Joe Sampite con- 
ling the bridge. He was however 
f disappointed on how long it 
c t to put the historical railings on 

Martha O' Bryan, a sophomore 
joring in chemistry, commented 
it the traffic. "It was really an- 
ing to attempt to go to town and 
ik that it was going to take five 
lutes and it ends up taking IS to 20 
mtes. It fel: like I was back home 
[ew Orleans and that is really 
icrous for a small community." 
ITie bridge was closed in order to 


place historical railings on the 
sides.The historical railings placed 
on the Church Street Bridge were 
paid for by the Association for the 
Preservation of Historic Natchito- 
ches. Mrs. Galloway was chairman 
of the bridge committee. The money 
was raised by donations from citi- 
zens. There wiU be two bronze 
plaques at the foot of the bridgeat the 
Front Steet enterance. The first one 
will be in appreciation to the people 
who donated money and their names 
will be listed on it. The second one is 
a memorial and it will list the names 
of deceased people that money was 
donated in their memory. 

Betty Jones, Executive Vice-Presi- 
dent of the Natchitoches Chamber of 
Commerce, said, " The bridge proj- 
ect had been discussed for a long time 
before it was actually begun. Itshows 
how strongly we feel about what 
Natchitoches stands for, and its rich 

However, this project did put a 
strain on the .Natchitoches Police 
Department. There was an officer 
working at either end of the bridge 
controlling the traffic lights. On some 
days their number of officers on pa- 
trol due to this project were cut by up 

to 50%, on other days only 33%. 

Public Information officer Cheat- 
wood said, "Considering the traffic 
situation it was dealt with very well 
by the citizens." There were several 
vehicle accidents during the bridge 
closure and these were located in 
front of Burger King. One of the 
accidents included four cars, how- 
ever only minor vehicular injures 

Some may wonder why this proj- 
ect was not completed during the 
summer when less disruption would 
have resulted from it. This was due to 
the excess rain and weather in the 
summer. The problems resulting from 
the bridge closure are but a small 
sample of the disturbance to come in 
the near future. Somewhere between 
six months to two years the Pine 
Street Bridge (the one located by 
Burger King) will be rebuilt and it 
will then add to a smoother flow of 
traffic in Natchitoches. The process 
of reconstruction however will most 
probably result in many traffic dis-

are in conjunction with Natchitoches' 
275th anniversary to be held in Octo-

The Church Street Bridge, which was closed down due to recent beauti- 
fication efforts, has finally reopened, alleviating some of the traffic prob- 
lems in Natchitoches.

stated, adding that he was impressed 
with the sidewalks and the grass 
because in Colombia, the university 
was in the middle of the city. "There 
were no sidewalks or a lot of open 
space because the buildings were 
close together." 

In the few weeks that they have 
attended Northwestern, the teachers 
and students have made quite an 
impression. "The teachers have been 
very helpful. Someone will always 
help you whether it be a student or a 
teacher. I'm just trying to absorb as 
much as I can," Michael stated. 

In May, Santiagoand Michael wil 1 
leave Northwestern and return to their 
respective countries. Each will bring 
back educational experiences and 
many memories. But they are learn- 
ing more than just a basic education, 
they are receiving a lesson on life. 

Michael explained, "In these past 
few weeks, I have learned a lot about 
television and print journalism, 
American society, and myself. I have 
no doubt that I will continue to learn 
more throughout the rest of this year. 
I would advise every Northwestern 
student to see about ISEP because 
you learn so much about yourself and 
the rest of humanity."

Formal Rush dismal for campus fraternities 


Formal Rush for the fraternities 
started on August 1 7 and went through 
August 22 with Open Rush starting 
on August 23. Kappa Alpha, Kappa 
Sigma, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Theta 
Chi and Sigma Tau Gamma were the 
fraternities that participated in For- 
mal Social Rush. 

Kappa Alpha Order received 3 1 
pledges during Rush. Pledging KA 
are Scott Andrews, David Arcemont, 
Jon Arnold, Paul Bean, Paul Bow- 
man, Scott Broadway, Ed Coker, 
Calvin Cupp, Cody Davis, Rick 
Ducote, Chris Edmondson, Joe 
Ezernack, Kevin Fayard, Ken Hale, 
and Scott Holstein. 

Also pledging KA was Todd 
Huddleston, John Lee, Brant Lorio, 
Jason Lott, Jason McCarty, Chris 
Matthews, Sammy Matussa, Mike 
Michelle, Chris Morgan, Todd Nash, 
Frank Rosamond, M.J. Sch- 
wartzenburg, Alan Whittington, 
Philip Wolfe, and Neil Wyatt. 

Kappa Alpha president Bobby 
Cockrell said, "Everything went well 
except for the number of guys. I 
think that Interfraternity Council 

needs to work in getting a larger 
number of guys to go through Rush." 

Dan Ahrens, KA Rush Co-Chair- 
man, said, "I can devote the success 
that we had during Rush to my Rush 
committee and to my brothers. Iam 
happy with the guys we got. They are 
a great asset to Kappa Alpha Order." 

Kappa Sigma got 26 men during 
Rush. PledgingKZ were Kevin Berry, 
Richard Bienvenu, Michael Brew- 
ton, Tommy Cannon, Thomas Ch- 
ester, Chris Dezendorf , John Wayne 
Dowers, Keo Ehrhardt, Mark Files, 
Les Fontenot, John Fowler, Todd 
Harrel, and Wheat Kuhlman. 

Also pledging Kappa Sigma were 
Greg McGuire, Phillip Maggio, Chad 
Melancon, Chris Nelson, Todd Pinck- 
ley, Gary Pittman, Greg Robertson, 
John Roy, Chris St. Pierre, Daryl 
Spillman.RobertStroud, Mike Thorn, 
and Brent Walker. 

Brian D. Meaux, president of 
Kappa Sigma, said, "I think this year's 
fall Rush was tremendous. Our or- 
ganization is very pleased with the 
quality of young men that went 
through fall Rush. We commend IFC 
for a job well done." 

Stan McCallan, Ki Rush Chair- 

man, said, "I am pleased with our 
new pledges. We worked hard and 
pulled together in order to get the 
quality guys." 

Tau Kappa Epsilon president Larry 
Boyd said, "It went pretty well. Eve- 
rybody busted their tails, but with 48 
guys going through Formal Rush and 
us spending all of our timeand money, 
the numbers weren't sufficient for 
the effort we devoted. We hope for 
better results nextFall in Formal Rush. 
But, I do feel that we got some great 
pledges from this year's Rush." 

Twelve men pledged TKE. They 
were Lee Bennett, Ty Dubois, Daniel 
Duplechien, William Pearce, Sean 
Pool, Billy Robbins, Jason Sanders, 
Mark Taylor, John Tombrello, Steve 
Vierra, Shawn Wagner, and Tim 

Buddy Hays, TKE Rush Chair- 
man, said, "In formal Rush the num- 
ber of guys was down from last year, 
but the quality of guys was very 
impressive. Generally, I am very 
pleased the way Rush went and hope 
everyone else had a great Rush, too." 

Pledging Theta Chi was Jeff 
Breaux, Mike Escuriex , David Geter, 

Chris Lund, Craig Noto, Fred Perk- 
ins, Butch Tinker, Lee Trumble, and 
Chris Young. 

©X Rush Chairman Craig Taple 
said, "I was proud of my brothers 
duringRush. Itallowed us to reevalu- 
ate why we believe in the ideals of 
Theta Chi. Even though the rush 
numbers were low, we feel we have 
gained a great bunch of guys. We are 
looking forward to a great open 
Rush. . .hoping to get more good men." 

Pledging Sigma Tau Gamma were 
Brent Craig, Al Elkins, Phillip Gillis, 
Brad Hinton, Chris Howard, and 
Charles McDonald. 

Sigma Tau Gamma Danny Bissell 
said that he thinks that Rush needed 

ZTT Jon Terry said, "We con- 
ducted Rush very well. There just 
weren' tenough people going through. 
We did well anyway." 

IPC President Shawn Bailey said, 

"Basically, Rush was a success hi 
the stand pint that the fraternities | 
on great Rush activities. The Oj 
thing that could of improved RJ 
was a higher turnout. But as 1 
president, I feel that when you q 
have 3 out of 48 guys that do 
pledge a fraternity, you can call 
a successful Rush. Hopefully in 
future, Early Formal Rush will j 
prove with the number of rush 

Cadets lead the way at Fort Riley 

past summer, seventeen highly mo- 
tivated Army ROTC cadets of NSU's 
Demon Battalion excelled during 
seven weeks of challenging leader- 
ship development training at Ft. Riley 
in Kansas. 

Those who completed the Ad- 
vanced Camp were Charles E. Bick- 
ely II (top 30%) ; Robert M. Broughton 
(top 10%); Kenneth B. Capello; 
Alfred L. Dinkins Jr.; Larry A. Dox- 
tater (top 30%); Robert D. Jones; 
Cyrus Karimian; James O. Law- 
thorn; Anthony W. Mault (top 10%); 
John A. Means Jr. (top 30%); Kevin 
M. Reiswitz (top 10%); Johnnie R.

two semesters of Advanced ROTC, 
they will plan, organize, execute, and 
evaluate the School Year 1989-1990 
ROTC program under the direction 
of the Military Science Department. 

Attendance and successful com- 
pletion of Camp Warrior *89 is a 
prerequisite for the commissioning 
of the cadets as Second Lieutenants 
in the U.S. Army. Such completion 
requires passing a demanding cur- 
riculum of tests including physical 
fitness, land navigation, leadership 
reaction, marksmanship, tactical 
application exercises, and at least ten 
leadership evaluations performed 
under stressful conditions. Training 
progresses from individual skills to 

occupy the key leadership and staff

within IFC. The IFC constitution 
states a potential member must have 
an overall 2.0 GPA and 12 credit 
hours. Obviously this will have to be 
worked out because the majority of 
the men in formal rush are incoming 
freshman. As a whole, however, this 
will improve the fraternity system 
immensely with the elimination of 
potential hazing, may older guys al-

College fraternities have existed 
for over 200 years and began with Phi

College. There more than two mil-

Schmitz commented that, "Haz-

fraternity system. We have tired 
numerous programs to eradicate it 
from the fraternity, but so far none 
have accomplished the task. We 
believe that the elimination of pledge- 
ship is the most effective way to stop 
hazing practices from occurring." 

This fall, several TKE chapters 
will pilot the new member program,

say that three weeks later, a second 
wave of openings will be held at 1000 
screens around the country. 

Jerry Pierce, assistant to North- 
western President Dr. Robert Alost, 
said that Parkway Cinema seats 550 
people and because of demand for 
tickets, there will be two showings, 
one at 6:30 p.m . and one at 9:30 p.m. 
Jerry Pierce and Tom Whitehead

Complete details on the Natchito- 
ches premiere and ticket information 
will be released in the near future. 

Safron said that Ray Stark has 
agreed to donate all proceeds from 
the film premiere to a scholarship 
fund at Northwestern. 

According to Safron, the movie is 
actually finished and ready for re- 
lease, but due to legal matters, Ray 
Stark was prohibited to release the 
movie, until 1990. He said that a 
national company is performing the 
Robert Harling play and want to get 
their run in before the movie is re- 


However, after finishing the proj- 
ect, Safron said they renegotiated the 
contract and got several months back. 
"For all intents and purposes the 
movie is finished." 

Safron added he didn't know 
which of the stars would be attending 
the Natchitoches premiere. "We hope 
all of them can come, but we really 
wont know until the last ten days 
before the premiere." 

Promotion of the movie won't 
begin until two weeks before the re- 
lease, although Safron admitted there 
was "a lot of buzz" from test markets.

Kappa Sigma faces rush violations 

Staff Writer 

Rumors abound and innuendo flies 
surrounding the recent "allegations" 
regarding Kappa Sigma's rush viola- 
tions. The most difficult thing about 
the entire incident is to discern the 
facts from the rest of the bunk. 

The formal charges against Kappa 
Sigma — Interfraternity Council 
president Shawn Bailey prefers to 
call them allegations — are all alco- 
hol-related. The main rush infraction 
was perpetrated by a graduate stu- 
dent, Gordon Cruickshank, an alum- 
nus of Kappa Sigma living in the 
house at the time of rush because of 
financial troubles. In an effort to rush 
one of the incoming freshmen, John 
Wayne Dowers, Cruickshank took 
him around in his car with alcohol 
present. They then went to the TKE 
house to visit a friend of Cruikshank. 
There Shawn Bailey and Buddy Hays, 
IFC president and rush chairman 
respectively, witnessed this infrac- 

Brian Meaux, president of Kappa 

Sigma, explained this situation as 
only being the fraternity's fault be- 
cause they failed to mention not to 
drink with rushees. "When Gordon

assumed that he would understand 
the changes." Since the incident, 
Cruikshank has been evicted from 
the house. 

According to Bailey, Meaux was 
informed by Bailey the day after the 
aforementioned incident that Dow- 
ers could not be pledged. Dowers 
was pledged and Meaux justifies this 
by claiming that Bailey only said 
'"probably you'll lose John and 
Gordon will have to disassociate af- 
ter IFC decides.'" According to 
Meaux, Bailey never took a definite 

Another charge is that at 3:30 in 
the morning Campus Security officer 
Sid Williams responded to an anony- 
mous report that there was drinking 
at the Kappa Sigma house. Even 
though this happened at such an hour, 
Bailey said, "this shows a lackadaisi- 
ness that may happen at their par- 

ties." The officer saw three girls and 
two Kappa Sigmas with alcohol pres- 
entandopen. Meaux said that first of 
all there was no alcohol bought by a 
Kappa Sigma, the girls brought it 
with them after being at a bar. These 
were reported claims that there were 
beer cans all over, and there were 
supposed witnesses who drank beer 
said to have been bought by Kappa 

Bailey's comments on these ru- 
mors are: "There is nothing to do 
aboutrumors,unless someone comes 
up to me and says.T saw this person- 

"Because of all of the false rumors 
that have been started, the new stu- 
dents, old students and faculty think 
the worst of Kappa Sigma," said 
Meaux. "They think we dirty rush, 
they don't think that we follow the 
rules. It just isn't fair to start rumors 
before seeking the truth. It disap- 
points me to hear that people who I 
thought were friends of the fraternity 
have turned around and stabbed us in 
the back. Because it just isn't right to 

say bad things about an organization 
just to make yourself look better,"he 

There were also allegations of 
Kappa Sigma taking rushees out to a 
barn and getting them drunk. Meaux 
replied, "If there is any evidence to 
this more than just another false 
rumor, bring it on. But if its just 
another false rumor, then the one 
starting it can stick it where the sun 
don't shine." 

Kappa Sigma will be brought in 
front of the IPC Judicial Board. This 
is comprised of the IFC officers, and 
all fraternity presidents. In the 
constitution of IFC it is given the 
right to be "a governing body, cover- 
ing hazing, rush violations, and inter- 
fraternity matters. The main purpose 
of IFC is to be a governing body of 
your peers," according to Bailey. 

The outcome of all charges or 
"allegations" will be decided at the 
Interfraternity Council meeting to- 
day at 4:00.

ARA begins quarter system plan for meals 

Staff Writer 

Students with Variable-A meal 
plans have probably noticed thier 
balance is considerably lower than 
its' actual buying price of $615.00. 
The reason for this is the ARA meal 
system is now working on a quarter 
system. There are however, some 
questions concerning this procedure. 
Why did ARA change? Who is af- 
fected by this change? If I end the 
quarter with money left over will it be 
credited to the next quarter? 

The new quarter system is a result 
of last year's students failing to pay 
the balance owed on their meal card. 
ARA lost a considerable amount of 
money due to students' negligence. 
This loss affected not only the ARA 
system but we students as well. James 
Taylor, Food Service Director, said, 
"It will make an accurate account 
system for the school and ARA. 
What's happened is that students that 
don't come back have put fellow 
students, N.S.U, and ARA in adverse 
conditions." Taylor also said, 'The 

school wants us to operate with a 
high quality food service program. 
In order to do so we have to make sure 
students take care of their financial 

At present everyone is on the 
quarter system. Within the week 
students who have paid the entire 
Variable-A fee will see a change in 
their balance. Those who owe prom- 
issory notes will have money cred- 
ited to their accounts as they pay 
installments. ARA devised this sys- 

tem of allowing students to owe 
money and still use their meal cards 
by breaking the variable's cost into 
four installments. Installments are 
due at registration, September 22, 
October 20, and November 17. Fail- 
ure to maintain installments will re- 
sult in the suspension of a student's 
meal card.

he gym,tf Writer 

North western State University 
jduate Michaela Sampite made her 
[ional debut as a Dallas Cowboy 
leerleader on Sept. 2 in Dallas, 
ixas. Sampite was one of 20 cheer- 
iders selected to perform at halftime 
fing the Cowboys first home game 
ithe 1989-90 football season. 
; Sampite entered this year's com- 
jlition to become a Dallas Cowboy 
jieerleader along with 800 other 
licants. After a series of audi- 
ns, the list of girls was narrowed 
wn to 45 candidates who would 
nd a two-month cheerleading 
ip, although only 36 cheerleaders 
mid be able to dance at the Cow- 
ys first game. Sampite, who audi- 
last year and made cheerlead- 

ering camp, was eliminated during 
the final cut because of a muscle 

A few weeks after Sampite made 
camp, she broke her toe in an acci- 
dent at her home. However, she con- 
tinued to attend every four-hour prac- 
tice cession. Her determination was 
finally rewarded, as she was selected 
as one of the 36 cheer!eaders who 
would later perform at the first home 

Of the group of 36 cheerleaders, 
Sampite later became one of 30 who 
appeared at the Cowboy's preseason 
game in San Diego on Aug. 13. 

Sampite, a native of Natchitoches, 
attended Natchitoches Central High 
School where she was a band mem- 

ber, majorette and a member of the 
award winning dance line that won 
the sweepstakes award in state com- 
petition. She was also honored by 
Who's Who Among American High 
School Students. 

While attending Northwestern, 
Sampite was involved in many cam- 
pus activities. In addition to being a 
three-year member of the Cane River 
Belles Dance Line, she was a NSU 
bat girl and a basketball cheerleader. 
Sampite was elected to the State Fair 
and homecoming courts, as well as 
being a member of Sigma Sigma 
Sigma sorority. 

Following graduation from North- 
western, Sampite moved to Irving, 
Texas, where she is no w employed as

reshman Orientation disorients freshmen 

off Writer 

Now that Registration is over 
culty, staff and students can now 
Jttle down and begin their classes, 
hich is the main purpose we are all 
fere. Yet another confusing problem 
i come up, Freshman Orientation. 
I recently talked to Mrs. Gail Jones, 
ordinator of the Freshman Orien- 
tion program . Mrs. Jones was very 
kcited with this semesters upcom- 

ing program. She stated that the pro- 
gram was designed to increase the 
students chances for success in col- 
lege and to assist the student in ob- 
taining information about 
Northwestern 's campus resources and 
services. Mrs. Jones also stated with 
strong emphasis that all Freshman 
are required to attend all the Orienta- 
tion sessions. The students are also 
required to attend and successfully 
complete all the Library sessions. 

The students should follow the 
schedule in the outline handed out on 
August 31, 1989. Everyone is re- 
quired to attend to the assigned class- 
room session on Tuesday, Septem- 
bers, 1989. All students are required 
to bring a Northwestern State Uni- 
versity General Catalog (1988 or 

1989) , Schedule of Classes (Spring 

1990) and a Northwestern State Uni- 
versity Student Handbook. On Sep- 
tember 7, 1989 at 11:00 a.m., Sep- 

temoer 11,1989, at 4:00 a.m. and 
September 13, 1989 at 9:00 a.m. the 
Library Examinations will be given. 
If anyone completes the exam with a 
passing grade they will be exempted 
form the Library sessions. 

Mrs. Jones was also excited about 
Adele Scheele, Pearl Bailey and 
Admiral Stansfield Turner, who will 
be speaking to the Orientation classes. 

r., Miss NSU elections set for Sept 20 

^faff Writer 
With the commencement of col- 
ge, elections for 1989-1990 Mr. 
Miss NSU are drawing near. 
It's the highest elected honor a 
iorthwestern student can receive. "It 
a very big honor for me," stated 
86-1987 Miss NSU Reatha Cole, 
it's not something you campaign 
)r, however. It's more like Home- 
ilp from h aming ar.J the State Fair Courts." 

i f 

The tradition of Mr. and Miss NSU 
began as far back as 1957. Campus 
organizations (dorms, athletics, 
Greeks, etc.) nominated six students 
(three boys and three girls) who pos- 
sessed leadership potential and con- 
tributed to school and community 
related activities. 

Today these campus affiliations 
only nominate two people (one male 
and one female). They must be at 

least first semester seniors with a 2.0 
or better grade point average, possess 
good leadership qualities and per- 
sonality, and extend their services to 
the school. 

The election decision is somewhat 
difficult, for there are many qualified 
students who participate in sports, 
well-organized campus activities, 
Purple Jackets, the dance line, and 
student government, as well as many 

Evans' ads key to Current Sauce 

\ff Writer 

"I was looking for a student job, 
id I wanted to get involved... the 

sition opened up, and I took it," 
id Allen Evans in the summer of 
t7. Two years later Evans is still the 
dvertising Manager of the Current 

uce and can be credited for much 
f the advertisements in the Sauce. 

If you are wondering what sort of 

rson would be the Ad Manager for 
» paper — well here goes: Allen is a 
lember of the National Honor Fra- 

ternity, Blue Key, Grandmaster of 
ceremonies for the Kappa Sigma 
Fraternity, former secretary of the 
IFC, a Sigma Sigma Sigma Beau, 
possesses the ability to talk with 
people easily, and is from Natchito- 
ches which gives him a head start 
because he already knows many of 
the local merchants. 

Allen works around 1 5-20 hours a 
week selling ads, creating ads for 
those businesses who do not already 
have one prepared, and handles all 

When he is not either studying or 
working Allen finds time to play 
basketball, go waterskiing, and hunts 
on occasion. Although, with all of 
theactivities he is involved in itseems 
difficult to find the time for these 
leisure activities. 

Unfortunately for the Sauce, Al- 
len will be leaving in December, a 
semester early, with a degree in 
Business Administration. His plans 
for after graduation are law school, 
although he is undecided as to which 
school he will attend. 

Turnout for Formal Rush minimal 

frff Writer 

With 48 males participating, NSU 
Jitnessed one of the smallest rushes 
fer. Down from 150 last year, many 
Peeks credit the change in rush 
thedule (from after registration to 
pore). Shawn Bailey, IFC presi- 
pt is a strong proponent of this 
pw point "Maybe early rush was 
p main reason for it, and also be- 
pse of jobs at home andother things 

going on." Another reason for the 
small turnout was an error in public- 
ity. IFC sent mailouts to the incom- 
ing freshmen, but with a mistake in 
the format of the addressing, the post 
office would not allow it to be sent 
bulk rate. 

IFC's president, Bailey, had real- 
ized that some parents would not 
allow their sons to go a week ahead 
just to pledge a fraternity. IFC had 
seminars on Time/Stress manage- 

ment, Academic Study Skills, Lead- 
ership skills all put on by student 
services; we also offered the food 
services to them. 

Another attraction IFC is try ing to 
add to early rush is registration at 
rush, just for the Greeks and rushees. 
This plan is still only in its proposal 
stage and there are mixed feelings as 
to its success or failure. 

The nominations for this year's 
election must be turned in no latei 
than twelve noon on Monday, Sep- 
tember 11. Elections are set foi 
Wednesday September 20, and run- 
offs will take place on Wednesday 
September 27 if necessary. 

Rowing team theft 
occurs atboathouse

Sometime during the evening of 
Friday, Aug. 25, a break-in occurred 
at the boathouse where the North- 
western Rowing Team stores their 
boats , according to police reports filed 
the next morning. 

The break-in was reported Satur- 
day morning by Lisa Wolffe, the 
faculty sponsor to the rowing team. 

Entrance to the building was 
gained through the front door. 
Damages included: theft of tool used 
on the boats; multiple broken heating 
lights; decking on one of the boats 
torn; a telephone ripped out of the 
wall; and obscene messages directed 
toward the team left written on a 

The Rowing Team's boathouse is 
located on Sibley Drive past the stop 
sign at the entrance to the dairy farm. 

Campus Police are still looking 
into the matter, but as of yet, no 
arrests have been made.

There has been some concern as to 
whether the balance will transfer to 
the next quarter. If a student ends a 
quarter with a positive balance, that 
money will be transferred to the next 
quarter. Wilson assured, "ARA is 
working to help the students. This is 
not intending to hurt anyone. We 
want a good accounting system for 
the food we're supplying." Taylor 
added, "ARA is a service-oriented 
company and we are here to please 
and serve the students." 

Books...continued B^istration^contmued 
from page 3 from page 2 

What types of textbooks can be 
sold? Any type can be sold as long as 
they're in good condition. SGAalso 
allows students to 'trade-off their 
textbooks rather than sell them. 

What are the attitudes toward the 
book exchange? Last year a lot of 
students were encouraged to partici- 
pate in the SG A book exchange. They 
thought it was a good idea because it 
gave them free advertising and about 
30-40% of the money they originally 
paid for their books. 

When asked about her opinion on 
the SGA book exchange, Darlene 
Marshall of the University Bookstore 
had this comment. "...By opening an 
SGA book exchange this will give 
the students another alternative to 

purchase his/her textbooks. Since 
there has never been a successful 
program of this sort at NSU, I have no 
knowledge of the impact it would 
have on the University Bookstore." 

"I'd like to encourage the students 
to take advantage of the SGA book 
exchange program and other pro- 
grams that are sponsored through 
SGA," said Jenkins, "because we are 
there for the students." 

dents to pay. Not to mention that 
there are going to be students who 
do have financial problems. 

I certainly can' t offer the perfect 
registration or fee paying process, 
but then again, that's not my job. 
However, I certainly think that the 
university should look into telephone 
registration. Telephone registration 
has proven to be a feasible solution 
to many universities. 

Another possibil ity that was sug- 
gested by Lynda Tabor, director of 

enrollment, services and registrar, was 
mail-out billing. Mail-out billing 
sounds like a great idea to me. As an 
out-of-state student, it would be a 
convenient option for me. Mail-out 
billing and prepayment would help 
students who do not want to come to 
school a week early and pay for a 
week's worth of meals. It would also 
be a blessing to the Greeks, rushees 
and members of the band who have 
other commitments. 

I certainly hope that Northwest- 
em will take a close and serious look 
at the current process of fee paying 
and registration and will make the 
needed changes for next semester's 
registration. Better late than never.

Panthers impeach Governors, 
prepare to meet Northwestern 

live up to their No. 8 rating while 
dropping a 20- 10 decision to SMSU, 
helping the Bears win their sixth 
season opener in the last seven years. 

"They were better than us," said 
Northwestern head coach Sam Good- 
win. "They came to play and out- 
played us. I don't see very many 
teams beating them this year." 

The Bears, preseason favorites in 
the Gateway Conference, ran up 396 
total yards and held on to the ball for 
a 38-22 minute time of possession 
advantage. Quarterback DeAndre 
Smith led them on scoring drives 
ranging from 60 to 81 yards. 

"They kept the ball and looked 
like the veteran team they are," said 
Goodwin. "They're very strong of- 
fansively — that's obvious, anytime 
you chew up the kind of clock and 
yardage they did. It put so much 
pressure on our offense and wore 
down our defense." 

The Demons compiled some 
impressive offensive numbers but 
weren't able to convert them into 
points. Northwestern had 340 yards, 
an average of nearly six yards per 
play, and crossed to Southwest 
Missouri's side of the field seven out 
of 10 possessions. 

Of those 340 yards, quarterback 
Scott Stoker produced 196 yards and 
one touchdown on a 16 for 26 per-

This Saturday night the North- 
western State University Demons will 
take the field in search of their first 
victory and to try to equal their record 
at 1-1. The Demons will face the 
Eastern Illinois Panthers of Char- 
leston, Illinois on the grass surface at 
O'Brien Stadium(which will seat 
10,000). NSU will be playing against 
a Gateway Conference foe for the 
second straight weekend on the road. 

Northwestern will be trying to 
a venge a 20- 10 bumping by the Bears 
of Southwest Missouri .State. The 
No. 8 ranked Demons received a 
heady performance by senior quar- 
terback Scott Stoker who passed for 
196 yard and rushed for an extra 25 
yards. The injury-prone Demons had 
to play without the services of Ail- 
American safety Dennis Smith in 
much of the second-half due to a 
sprained ankle. 

This week will be a big test for the 
Demons because the Ear^m Illinois 
Panthers return 20 of 22 skiers from 
last year's 5-6 ball club. This contest 
will be the debut meeting between 

the two schools. 

Last week Eastern Illinois im- 
peached the Governors of Austin Peay 

36-0. Jamie Jones rushed for 85 
yards to led the Panthers to their 
season opening victory. Quarter- 
back Eric Arnold threw for 143 yards 
and a pair of touchdowns. 

Another obstacle for the Demons, 
as far as on paper goes, the Panthers 
will be trying to win their twelfth 
straight home opener. Eastern Illi- 
nois will offensively run a pro-set 
and defensively line up in a 4-2. John 
Jurkovic will anchor the Panther 
defense as a returning All- American. 

Saturday night's game will begin 
at 6:30 p.m. and can be heard locally 
on KDBH (97.7 F.M.) and KNOC 
(1450 A.M.) 

The Demons should receive added 
defensive punch from Dennis Smith 
and his backup Pat Clark returning 
from nagging injuries. The offensive 
corps is hoping for the return of tail- 
back Kenneth DeWitt, who should 
return for action against Eastern Illi- 

High jumper Brown ready for 
the world in upcoming event 

Sports Writer 

NSU high jumper Brian Brown 
will represent Northwestern and 
America at the World Cup Track & 
Field Championships in Barcelona, 
Spain Sept. 8-10. 

He earned his spot, and the right 
to be America's sole representative 
by jumping7-7 1/4 and finishing first 
at the USA/ Mobile Championships 
in June. In winning the meet he upset 
1988 Olympic silver medalist Hollis 

Brown has competed twice since 
then. Finishing fourth at an interna- 
tional meet (with a 7-4 mark) on June 
25. On July 30 he finished third (with 

a 7-6 mark) at the U.S. Olympic 

When asked about the upcom- 
ing meet, Brown commented, "It 
could be memorable. If weather 
conditions are right and the competi- 
tion is what it should be, I firmly 
believe we'll see another (world rec- 
ord) 8 foot jump." 

NSU head track coach Leon 
Johnson had this to say of Brown. 
"He is as well prepared physically 
and mentally as he's ever been for a 
competition. He might hit one per- 
fectly and clear 7-10." 

"He's earned what he's gotten," 
Johnson continued, "and anything 
good that happens, he deserves." 

formance that made him the fourth 
Demon quarterback ever to top 3,000 
on a 9-yard toss from Stoker to senior 
Al Edwards to cap a 6l-yard drive 
with 2: 30 left in the first half to tie the 
score at 10 apiece. After that, the 
Demons only crossed the Bear 20- 
yard line once more and did not score 
again, despite ending all of their 
second-half drives in Bear territory. 

According to Goodwin, South- 
west Missouri has a "much improved" 
team over it's 1988 edition which 
opened with a 24-8 loss at North- 

Proof of this was their offense. 
Despite excellent performances by 
linebackers Tracy Palmer, Andre 
yards in a career. Sophomore split 
end Jerry Robertson was Stoker's 
leading receiver with four catches for 
63 yards and the top rusher was start- 
ing tailback James McKellum with 
61 yards on seven carries. 

"To get 340 yards in only 22 
minutes is not to bad, especially 
when you don't have anything click- 
ing. There was nothing you could 
hang your hat on," said Goodwin, 
"no consistent gainer. We'd get in 
their end of the field and then not get 
anything out of it." 

The lone Demon touchdowncame 
Carron, Greg Necaise, and Randolph 
Hayes, the Bear offense had no prob- 

lem doing what they wanted. 

"We didn't play very well last 
night, but they had a lot to do with 
that They're much better then last 
year, particularly with their defen- 
sive speed. They got off our blocks 
much better and were a lot quicker 
this year," said Goodwin. 

"We're close to them, even with 
the way we played," he said, as he 
listed five key plays which shifted 
the momentum and the game away 
from the Demons: 

*A second-and-five option play 
which dropped a yard from the Bear 
7 in the first period — "we made the 
wrong pitch," — and produced a field 
goal instead of a touchdown. 

* A drive stopped on a lost fumble 
by sophomore tailback Randy Wright 
at the SMSU 44 on the fourth play 
following SouthwestMissouri'slead- 
taking touchdown near the end of the 
third quarter. 

*An overthrown pass to an open 
John Tappin at split end on a deep 
post pattern, ending the Demons' 
next possession at the SMSU 4 1-yard 

*A face mask penalty called on 
safety Steve Compton, who brought 
down Rodney McConico for a 5-yard 
loss on third down from the SMSU 
10. Instead of being forced to punt 
from within the end zone, Southwest 
Missouri converted a second-chance 
third down and scored a field goal 75

man year when she and departed 
senior Tanya Champagne shared the 
setter's position. Helping Sherrell 
might be senior Jill Jenkins or sopho- 
more Ladine Thomas, who will be 
entering her first full season follow- 
ing an injury delayed 1988 debut. 

McCalister is particularly excited 
by the new faces next to the NSU nets 
this season and with good reason. 
The new additions bring with them 
height, experience and power to the 
Lady Demon lineup. Renita Ellis, a 
transfer from San Joaquin Delta 
College in California, and high school 
teammate Kelly Banks will add much 
needed power to the front row. 

A taste of international flavor and 
experience will be added to the pro- 
gram via Glasgow, Scodand native 
Claire Gilmartin. Her international 
experience could make her an impor- 
tant figure in Lady Demon strategy. 

"Claire will have a big impact in 
our program," said McCalister. "She 
could potentially be the best player 
through our program." 

Coach McCalister is also pleased 
with the progress of incoming fresh- 
men Monica Matthieu, Kelly Fon- 
tenot, and Amy HaslitL "Monica, 
kelly, and Amy are all good hitters 
and will definitely see some playing 
time," he said. 

With the loss of five seniors, the 
Lady Demons will miss the experi- 
ence, but McCalister feels that this 
years team can handle that. He 
stressed the team concept as the for- 
.nulafora successful 1989 campaign.

Purple Jackets 

There is a meeting today at 
5:00pm in the 3rd floor Student 
Union. All members must attend. 

Le Cercle Francais 

Are you tired of being told that 
you lack culture, sophistication, or 
"depth"? If so, join Le Cercle 
Francais— NSU'sFrenchClub. We 
offer you an opportunity to get 
exposed to the glories of French 
culture and civilization. 

In case you think that we are just 
a group of bores interested only in 
lectures, exhibitions, French lan- 
guage and tutoring, we are not! We 
enjoy travel to various Cajun festi- 
vals throughout Louisiana, mov- 
ies, picnics, parties, games and 
many other entertaining activities 
which join us as a group of real 
friends. If you are merely search- 
ing for something to add to your 
resume^ Le Cercle Francais is not 
for you. 

Our next meeting will be on 
Thursday, Sept. 14, at 5p.m., in 
Room 312 of the Student Union. 

Support Group 

The members of the support 
group for non-traditional students 
are hosting an open house for all 
NSU non-traditional students. Cof- 
fee will be available and members 
will provide homemade goodies to 
eat. Everyone is welcome! Tues- 
day, September 19 at 11:00 am in 
401 Keyser Hall. 

Stress Management Work- 

Do you have a spouse, 2 kids, a 
dog, 2 cats, 3 goldfish, and 1 ham- 
ster? If so, you'reprobably an aver- 
age American household, but I bet 
you wish you had some time to 

Do you spend hours faithfully 
studying for your courses, spend 
time talking with troubled friends, 
and then spend the rest of your time 
participating in various school ac- 
tivities? You probably wish some- 
one had the time to listen to you and 
could relax and "let your hair down." 

When your life button is pressed 
for "full speed" and you know it's 
time to slow down but you don't 
know how - attend our workshop on 
stress and leam effective techniques 
for handling stress. Learn it's O.K. 
to be "selfish" sometimes and (a) be 
by yourself, (b) take time to relax, 
(c) to be average and not perfect. 

The workshop will be presented 
Thursday, Sept. 21 at 11:00 am at 
401 Keyser Hall. Sponsored by 
Student Support Services, Mary 
Nour presenter. 

There will be a small panel of 
students participating in the work- 
shop, to answer questions on how 
they handled certain situations and 
how they've overcome stressful 
periods in their life. 

Don't forget the pep rally at noon 
riday, September 15, in front of 
he Student Union. Come out 
nd support the team against

SAB President has positive outlook 

Staff Writer 

The Student Activities Board 
(SAB) is the organization on cam- 
pus that is designed to promote and 
organize campus activities for the 

students to keep college life as 
wholesome and fun as possible. 

The president of SAB, Darryl 
Willis, is working to make this year's 
organization one of the best. "As far 

Photo by Robert Allen 

Darryl Willis, a junior in the Louisiana Scholars' Col- 
lege, is looking forward to a great year as the "coordina- 
tor" of the 1989-1990 SAB. 

as this year is concerned, one thing 
I want to do is start with the board it- 
self. In order to promote better 
activities from the persons working 
on the board, I want to be more 
encouraging and attentive to others. 
Being president is rather stressful 
because even though the SAB is 
running well, there are many things 
that can be changed to make it bet- 
ter. Such things as keeping accu- 
rate records and rebuilding the com- 
mittee system would make the SAB 
a more professional board and one 
that caters to the students." 

One thing the SAB is working 
on is changing Welcome Week. 
Says Willis, "Welcome Week has 
not been too successful in the past 
because of the hectic registration 
process and the weariness of the 
students. I've spent a lot of time 
talking to other Louisiana universi- 
ties about what they do for Wel- 
come Week. My discussions with 
them will help me decide whether 
to improve Welcome Week, leave 
it the way it is, or abolish it com- 

As far as the campus is con- 
cerned, Willis plans to publicize 
SAB more and allow the students to 
see that SAB is here. "I would like 
to add a personal touch to the or- 
ganization by sending birthday cards 
to the students and/or Christmas 
cards to the faculty and staff. That 
way when SAB is mentioned, people 

will say 'Hey, they sent me a birth- 
day card' or 'Hey, they sent me a 
Christmas card'." 

This is Willis ' s first year as presi- 
dent. His basic job is to oversee all 
of the SAB meetings; to assist the 
vice president; organize the com- 
mittee system; and to make sure 
that each committee (there are 
seven) is functioning properly and 
that each committee chairperson is 
doing their job. 

"I love it!" he exclaims. "My 
main task is to find out what the 
students want. There are seven 'rep- 
resentatives at large' who represent 
the students and collect their opin- 
ions. Polling will also be planned to 
find out more about the students' 

SAB is trying to reach the stu- 
dents and get them involved in the 
community. The organization will 
start a gradual rebuilding process 
which will begin this year and con- 
tinue for years to come. And they 
need all of Northwestern's support. 

Willis refers to himself as a co- 
ordinator rather than a president. "I 
really hate the term 'president.' It 
seems so remote, as if that person is 
standing out away from the group. I 
want to have as much interaction 
with the committees as possible. 
That's what is important to me. Not 
just sitting behind a big desk and 
doing whatever, but being involved 
and getting things done."

Our Opinion 

Demon's Advocate 

Damian D. Domingue 

Haute monde should be a legal 
term. For the uni-lingual audience, 
that's the French phrase for "fash- 
ionable world." In my tenacious 
search for the mod, one day this 
week, I stationed myself in the 
Union to observe students' mode of 
dress. Callmeafashionophile. My 
inquest: to discover if our hamlet is 
even within the same solar system 
of haute monde. I came, I saw, I got 
ill. Before I appear prematurely 
precipitant, consider a scant collec- 
tion of the "fashion incidents" I 
witnessed. Scene of the crime: 
Sylvan Friedman Student Union. 

I watched a large-haired female 
exit the cafe and immediately 
charged her with attempted wear- 
ing of Dirty Dancing jeans in a 
manner of suspect fashion. Why 
would anyone, unless under the 
threat of nuclear holocaust, will- 
ingly select these as a fashion op- 
tion? Cutoffs have always come, 
and gone to our enchantment, in 
faddish cycles. However, I see no 
merit whatsoever in cuffed, ber- 
muda-length blue jeans. Am I 
missing something? 

Could it be that those who attire 
themselves as such are trying to 
imitate, or mock, Patrick Swazye 
and Jennifer Grey? It's said that 
imitation is the most sincere form of 
flattery . . .scared yet? Perhaps these 
misfits think that by dressing like 
them, they will achieve cool status 
equivalent to Swazye & Grey. I 
think I'm going to throw up. "Take 
those pants off!" I yearned to yell, 
but refrained at the risk of sounding 
perverse. I wanted to shuck those 
bermudas off her buttocks right 

Follow the simple rule noted in 

the 1981 December (page 119) is- 
sue of Harper's Bazaar to avoid 
such future embarrassment Itstates: 
"It is in the wisest fashion con- 
science not to don any trend made 
popular by film or folklore dealing 
with dance instructors and unwanted 

I also viewed several individu- 
als wearing bandanas on their heads 
in the likeness of a shower cap. 
After inquiry, I was informed that 
these were called "Doo-rags". I 
am confused as to the etimology of 
this word. The "rag" part is obvi- 
ous, but what about the "Doo"? 
What precisely does it "doo"? It 
stems from, I suspect, the word 
"hair-doo", yet after wearing one, I 
also suspect that your hair "doesn ' t". 
I can imagine no purpose for this 
fatuous fad, and believe the general 
consensus is that they look ridicu- 

I proceeded downstairs to the 
bookstore to see other atrocities I 
might attend. Indeed, I discovered 
that Beau Brummel himself attends 
Northwestern. A charming indi- 
vidual, clad in black parachute pants 
and a t-shirt stating his philosophy: 
"Keep On Trucking", he was the 
epitome of nattiness. He made two 
petit errors. 

Firstly, parachute pants arc only 
in fashion if the wearer/victim plans 
to attempt a 20,000 foot jump, or 
intends to kill himself, in which 
case anything is suitable and high 
fashion experts will rejoice regard- 

Secondly, t-shirts embellished 
with metallic decals displaying 
sophomoric sayings like "I'm With 
Stupid," "Foxy Lady," and 
"Where's the Beef?" are no longer 

in style. In fact, I don't recall that 
they ever were. 

Finally, for individuals stuck in 
the "I'd like to be a fashion plate but 
don't know where to start" syn- 
drome, I have included some addi- 
tional should-be legal terms. In- 
spired by my observations, they 
should appropriately outline the 
gravest of fashion faux pas. 

• E Bracletus Frienditis: What 
are these ridiculous pieces of twine 
that people wrap around their wrists? 
What next? Friendship belts? 
Friendship suspenders? Macrame' 
is better left for hanging plants. 

• Bodygloverum non Atheleticus: 
Make no mistake, the only accept- 
able usage of these fluorescent 
"biking pants" are if you actually 
intend to cycle. They are not to be 
worn as everyday wear in that they 
score negatively on the fashion at- 
tractiveness scale. The only other 
probable case is if you are Eddie 
Van Halen, a distinction few of us 

• Quo Aereoartis: Airbrushed 
apparel is in strict conflict of Fash- 
ion Commandment 116 : Never 
wear anything purchased in Flor- 
ida. It is a virtual Fashion-Sodom 
and Gomorrah. 

• Non polyesteria: Don't wear 
anything that doesn't say Made by 
Mother Nature. Clothes that melt 
when too near an open flame can't 
look too good on anyway. 

Follow these simple rules to 
"dress for success," pick up a copy 
of Color Me Beautiful, get thee to a 
Bloomingdale's, and before you 
realize it you too will be a slave to 
fashion. For those who choose to 
disregard this advice, itismostlikely 
that you are in bad need of a Vogue. 
You have the right to remain out of

Disgruntled dazzler responds to accusations 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing in regard to Mr. 
Robert Allen's letter to the editor 
last week. As a third-year member 
of NSU's dance line, I was insulted 
by his opinion of the coverage of 
mine and eleven other female bod- 

First, I would like to make the 
fact known that the Demon Daz- 
zlers do not consider themselves 
part of a "strip show." Each year we 
obtain practice uniforms felt to be 
in rational comparison with other 
universities. We strive for a colle- 
giate look, one that is pleasing to the 
eye, not a naked body, stripped and 
painted purple. 

For three years in a row I have 
performed at Freshman Orientation . 
Our outfits in 1987 consisted of 
purple "much too short" shorts, 
tights, and t-shirts. In 1988 they 
were purple long sleeve leotards, 
tights, and white "short" wrap- 
around skirts. This year we wore a 
two piece outfit consisting of a 
purple mock turtleneck leotard, 
purple bike pants, and a white belt. 

In comparison, I felt most comfort- 
able, as far as being fully clothed, in 
this years outfit. Religiously and 
morally I have no problem with 
what my director has chosen for the 
Demon Dazzlers as a respectable 

As far as you, Mr. Allen, are 
concerned, let me take this time to 
forewarn you. During band practice 
on theday of games, pep rallies, and 
benefits we will most likely have 
these uniforms on. Now that you 
are informed of the entertainment 
that you so obviously find objec- 
tionable, you can make plans to 
attend. I will try not to miss your 
absence in the crowd. 

I also fail to see the comparison 
between paint and spandex. But if 
you feel the need to strip naked and 
paint yourself purple to prove your 
point I can only say, "Bah!" 

We aren't sex symbols, 
Mr. Allen. We aren't 
strippers.. .we're dancers.

The Supreme Court recently 
ruled that the burning of the United 
States Flag is a form of expression 
protected by the Constitution. This 
is not in any way a departure from 
the Court's past opinions about the 
meaning of the First Amendment. 
It has always been every American' s 
right to say what he believes in 
whatever bizarre fashion he pleases. 

In reaction to this ruling, how- 
ever, President Bush has called for 
an amendment to the U. S. 
Constitution to forbid burning the 
flag, and a lot of members of Con- 
gress are looking for excuses to 
jump aboard the amendment band- 
wagon. This is not really surpris- 

The Bush anti-flag-burning 
amendment is the kind of non-issue 
which politicians love to see. They 
can score political points with a 
majority of their constituency with- 
out actually having to address seri- 
ous, pressing and costly issues such 
as the federal deficit, homelessness 
and the growing incidence of un- 
ethical behavior by Congress 

Aside from the distraction of our 
country's leaders from more im- 

portant considerations, mostpeople 
view the amendment as fairly harm- 
less, perhaps even a good thing. 
After all, ordinary folks don't want 
to burn a flag (unless it is old and 
needs to be disposed of) and we 
don't really have a lot of sympathy 
for those who do. 

The entire issue reminds me 
ominously of the story of William 
Tell, the legendary Swiss hero. Most 
people recall the story, or at least 
the climactic part of it, where Wil- 
liam shoots the apple off the head of 
Walter, his young son. 

What many forget is that Wil- 
liam was forced to make the shot by 
the thoroughly rotten Hermann 
Gessler, Imperial Bailiff (Baron) 
over that part of Switzerland. 

According to a play by Friedrich 
von Schiller, which recounted the 
legend, Gessler ordered that a hat 
be placed atop a pole and that an 
announcement be made: 

"Respect shall be paid to this hat 
as to 

Himself. With bended knee and 
with bared head 

It shall be reverenced. And by 
such token 

The king will know who is obe- 

dient ^ 
And any man disdaining tli j 

Shall forfeit life and goods ui , TINA F< 
the king." *ff Write, 

—William Tell, Act I, Scene «t WOi f Q , 
In the legend, of course, Willial appre'eiat 
Tell refused to give obeisance to Hestion has 
hat, and was made to perform tibtonly dot 
stunt with the apple, which, for^od sp^t, 

nately, he was skillful enough to %ost all o 
complish. om pep.,. 

Since 1804, when Schiller^, Ui e che<

When your throat is red and sore, 
there are ways to help relieve pain 
quickly. While few sore throats are 
serious, you should also know when 
sore throat means you schould call 
your doctor. Then you'll be able to 
use self-care with confidence. 

When your throat hurts, it's a 
sign your body is fighting off "in- 
vaders" such as germs allergens 
(substances to which you are aller- 
gic). Other symptoms that often go 
along with sore throats are hoarse- 

ness and swollen lymph nodes in 
your neck. Sore throats can be 
caused by strep, colds, flu, other in- 
fections such as mononucleosis, 
allergies,cigerette smoke, orstrain- 
ing the voice (such as shouting at a 
football game). 

For most throats, your self-care 
goal is to feel less pain and to avoid 
substances which might be causing 
the condition. If your throat is sore, 
stop smoking atleast until the red- 
ness and pain disappear. Drink 

plenty of liquids: atleast 6 glasses 
per day. Gargling with warm salt 
water every hour or two offers tem- 
porary relief. Sucking on cough 
drops or losenges, or taking asprin 
or asprin will lessen pain from a 
sore throat If allerges are causing 
your sore throat, an antihistamine 
will stop irratiting mucus from drip- 
ping. If possible, stay in en- 
viorments where the allergen is fil- 
tered out. 

Call your doctor if.... 

• your temperture is 102 F or 

• you have white spots on your 

• breathing or swallowing are 
very difficult 

• lymph nodes in your neck are 
hard, swollen, or tender 

• you have a skin rash 

• you were recently exposed to

A letter from Vic 

Dear students and Demon football 

Despite what many of you may 
think, the 1989 football season has 
started. It's understandable that 
many of you may not know or have 
forgotten because the first two 
games were far away. Well, now 
you have no excuse. Saturday night 
we play here against East Texas 
State. There is no reason why ev- 

eryone can't be at the game. I want 
everyone there wearing purple and 
white. Support your cheerleaders 
and follow in with them. Greeks, I 
challenge you to show your unity 
and support for the school. Non- 
Greeks must prove to me that you 
bleed purple, regardless of the or- 
ganization you may or may not be 
in. / want to hear some noise. 
As far as the team goes, "Suck it 

up fellas." You're a good team, you 
just have to get it together. In our 
division, rankings mean nothing . 
You win the Southland and you go 
to the playoffs. As far as I'm con- 
cerned, the season starts Saturday. 
You can win, but you have to do it. 
Vic is with you and the students will 
be also.

O'Neil jumps ahead in Airborne training

The five points of performance 
ere running wildly through Lida 
-I'NeiFs head as she made her way 
i the door of the aircraft. Patiently 
aiting her turn, she edged her body 
ithe door. With nothing standing 
ttween her and the ground far 
clow, she jumped. 
Falling at approximately 22 feet 
tr second, O'Neil had to remem- 
tr to maintain a tight body post- 
on, to check canopy control, to 
tep a sharp lookout, to prepare to 
lid and, finally, to land correctly. 
"I wasn't scared," she said. "We 
been training so hard for two 
ks that I knew what I had to do. 

I felt confidant because I had in- 
structors that had made 250 para- 
chute jumps and were still walking 

A junior in the Scholars' Col- 
lege, O'Neil is studying Humani- 
ties and Social Thought. She was 
the only female among the six 
Northwestern ROTC students who 
attended Airborne School this 
summer. The school , located in Fort 
Benning, Ga. , operates a three- week 
course which prepares the students 
for five parachute jumps. 

The school was divided into three 
one-week sessions. Week one was 
"Ground Week" which taught stu- 
dents about the parachute, how to 
exit the door of the aircraft, how to 

fall and how to land. Students were 
then required to slide down cables 
from a 35-foot tower which gave 
them the first "hands-on" experi- 
ence of the education they were 
receiving in the classroom. 

Week two was 'Tower Week" 
which required cadets to drop from 
a 250-foot tower with a parachute. 
Students were raised to the top of 
the tower through the ring in the 
middle and then they were dropped 
to the ground, simulating an actual 
fall from an aircraft. The main ob- 
jectives of the week were to teach 
the students how to steer the para- 
chute and to qualify students for the 
actual jumps that would be made 
during week three. 

Finally, week three or "Jump 
Week" arrived. Students were then 
required to make five jumps from 
an aircraft. Two of the jumps were 
made with combat equipment. 

"At first I thought that it would 
be kind of glamorous. But, after 
being dirty and sweaty and hot all 
the time, the glamour part disap- 
peared," said O'Neil. "When we 
made the jumps with the combat 
equipment, another girl and I started 
complaining about how heavy it 
was. But then I realized that we 
were actually paratroopers and that 
this was our mission. It was not all 
fun and games like skydiving. I am

Marching Band ready for new season 


Staff Writer 

Just when we thought that they 
were at their best, they are going to 
be even better, said Bill Brent. The 
Spirit of Northwestern Marching 
Band is back for the 1989 school 
year and Director Bill Brent is ex- 

"This year's band is definitely 
going to be the best one since I have 
been at Northwestern," said Brent, 
who is entering his seventh year at 

The Spirit of Northwestern has 
increased its membership since last 
fall and now totals approximately 
240 members. Of the 240 members, 
there are approximately 175 horn 
piayers, 30 flag corp members, 30 
percussionists and 12 dance line 
members. "Although the numbers 
are impressive, it is the quality of 
the band that I am proud of," said 

The full band began rehearsing 
in mid-August, although certain 
sections of the band had summer 

workshops. Pamela Towry, assis- 
tant director of bands, held several 
summer percussion workshops. 
Paula Lessen, flag corp coordina- 
tor, and Jeff Matthews, drum ma- 
jor, have also contributed to the 
success of this year's band, Brent 

Brent also acknowledges Kappa 
Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma, the 
national honorary band fraternity 
and sorority respectively, for the 
band's start on the right foot The 
organizations, who recently an- 
nounced their third pledge classes, 
perform many services for the band 
including setting up equipment at 
the games, providing refreshments 
at the game and hosting band par- 
ties. "They do whatever needs to be 
done for the band. They are very 
helpful to us," said Brent. 

This fall the band will perform at 
five home games and three march- 
ing exhibitions. The Spirit ofNorth- 
western will host a marching con- 
test at Turpin Stadium for area high 
school bands on Saturday, Nov. 1 1. 

Additionally, the band will per- 
form at the State Fair Classic. "The 
performance at State Fair is very 
important to us because it is the 
most popularly attended out-of- 
town game," said Brent 

According to Brent, one of the 
changes that students will notice at 
the football game performances is 
that the band will to play to the 
student section more this year than 
before. When the Demons host East 
Texas State on Saturday, Sept. 16, 
Brent said the Spirit of Northwest- 
em will direct at least half of the 
show to the student side. This week 
the band will open their show with 
a special percussion feature per- 
formed by Spirit of Northwestern 
percussion, as well as high school 
percussionists from around the state. 

"This year I would really like to 
see the student section full at pre- 
game, instead of filling up the sec- 
tion about halfway through the first 
quarter," said Brent "Students need 
to be there to support the Demons at 
the beginning of the game." 

Dance line excited about home games 

Staff Writer 

Home football games are fast 
approaching and everyone is ex- 
cited about them. Another reason 
everyone is excited is the North- 
western State University Dance 

This past summer the Dance Line 
attended camp at Southwest Texas 
State University in St. Markos, 
Texas under the direction of the 
UCA College Spirit Camp and the 
Universal Dance Association. 

During the four days at the camp 
the dancers learned 12 new dances, 

they were evaluated and received 
29 ribbons for their performances. 
The dance line was also chosen one 
of the top five dance lines in atten- 
dance of the camp. 

"This camp was more of a skills 
camp rather than a competition camp 
even though there were awards 

given out to certain squads. We 
have a lot of new girls and a lot of 
new ideas. We are stronger this 
year and are going to have a good 
year," stated captain of the NSU 
Dance Line, Kim Garner. 

Northwestern police: What do they do? 

Staff Writer 

One of the most apparent and 
yet least-known groups of people at 
Northwestern are the NSU Police. 

The NSU Police force consists 
of thirteen full-time officers, sup- 
plementedduring theevening hours 
by sixteen part-time student walk- 
ers. There are always at least two 
officers on duty, with sometimes as 
many as five plus the walkers. 

All of the full-time officers are 
State-certified. They have attended 
at least the Louisiana State Police 
Academy, or a similar course, and 
have a commission from both the 
Natchitoches City Police and the 
Louisiana State Police. 

Officers can be hired in one of 
two ways. When hiring, the Chief 
first contacts the Civil Service of- 
fice in Baton Rouge and obtains a 
list of qualified applicants. He then 
contacts those applicants. If none 
are interested then the Chief is able 

to hire other people, but then the 
forcemust provide them with train- 
ing first. 

The regular shift for an officer is 
eight hours. The shifts are 6 a.m.- 
2 p.m., 2 p.m.-lO p.m., and 10 
p.m.-6 a.m. During the late-night 
shift there are only two officers on 
duty, while earlier in the evening 
there are4-5 plus the walkers. These 
shifts do change for special events, 

During NSU football games, all 
of the regular officers are on duty. 
There are also ten to fifteen city 
police and parish sheriffs at the 
games. For high school games and 
basketball games there are normally 
six officers on duty, due to the 
smaller numbers of people in atten- 

Police Chief Rickey Williams 
says that an officer on duty "patrols 
campus, investigates crimes, col- 
lects and preserves evidence, makes 
criminal arrests, testifies in court, 

and enforces all state and city laws 
and ordinances." During a football 
game, the officers are present to 
confiscate alcohol, keep people 
from blocking the aisles, patrol the 
parking lots, and keep people from 
loitering outside the stadium. 

One of the duties of the police is 
to patrol campus, both on foot and 
in cars. On foot, there are campus 
walkers from 7:00 p.m. to 1 :00 a.m. 
Campus walkers are student work- 
ers who are equipped with a port- 
able radio and patrol the campus. 
Their job is to spot possible prob- 
lems and to alert the regular officers 
so that an officer can handle the 
situation. There are also regular 
officers on foot from 4:00-6:00p.m. 

There are officers on patrol in 
cars 24 hours a day. During the day 
(until 6:00 p.m.) there is one patrol 
car that covers the entire campus on 
a random pattern. At night (until 
6:00 a.m.) there are two cars, one on 
the east half of campus and one on 

the west. 

One of the biggest problems that 
the force has is getting new equip- 
ment There has been very little 
money in the budget for them to do 
things like get a new car. This also 
affects their ability to send officers 
to seminars for additional training. 

However, some things are im- 
proving. Earlier this year, the state 
police began to allow their officers 
to carry 9mm handguns instead of 
revolvers. This allows for more 
firepower. This policy also covers 
theNSUPolice. Although notmany 
of the officers have had the oppor- 
tunity to acquire new weapons, they 
expect to in the near future. 

If a student were to need a police 
officer, all that they need to do is 
call the station or to find an officer 
on patrol. The NSU Police station 
is located on Caspari. behind Var- 
nado dorm, and their number is

Student Activities Board sets fall events 

Staff Writer 

College has started again. It's 
time to get back to the books. But to 
make college life as exciting as it 
can be, the Student Activities Board 
has planned a spectacular memo- 
randum of activities and special

The first is on September 16. The 
band "Self-Employed" will perform 
from 3:00-6:00 p.m. before NSU 
tackles East Texas State at 7:00 

In October, from the 5-8, a select 
group of SAB members will be 
going to the NACA Convention in 
Fort Worth, Texas (National Asso- 
ciation of College Activities). It's a 

convention held where different 
colleges from the area extend ideas 
and information about new types of 
entertainment, those currently out 
on the road, and the agencies that 
deal with those entertainers. 

OnOctober21 is the annual State 

In November, the SAB will start 
the Thanksgiving Food Drive. 
Information will start going out 
around the 1st of November. 

Interest forms for the Christmas 
Window Painting Contest will also 
be handed out on November 1 . The 
contest is an activity in which dif- 
ferent organizations on campus 
paint a Christmas scene on the front 
windows of the Student Union. 

From November 13-16, SAB 
will hold Las Vegas Week. On the 
16 is Las Vegas Night, an event 
which involves Las Vegas type 
games (poker, backgammon, and 
roulette). The students are issued 
play money and the object is to 
collect as much money as possible 

and according to certain dollar 
amounts, the winners will be given 
special prizes. 

In association with Las Vegas 
Night, "The Blizzard of Bucks" 
game show will make its first ap- 
pearance at NSU. It is a profes- 
sional game show that tours the 
country. Students will be able to 
sign up to be eligible contestants. 
Each plays a series of games that 
leads up to a finalist. The winner 
has a chance to enter a large glass 
bubble that blows a large amount of 

money. Whatever amount you grab 
is yours to keep. 

Organizations and groups on 
campus will decorate the annual 
Christmas tree on November 27. 

On December 2, the SAB and 
SGA will sponsor a float for the 
local Christmas Festival. Members 
from the SAB and SGA, as well as 
Miss LOB and the State Fair Queen

Judiciary Board decides fate of fraternity 

ert Allen 


$tqff Writer 

Amidst rumors and turmoil, the 
[nterfratemity Council's Judiciary 
Board met Monday, September 4, 
to decide the validity and conse- 
quence of the allegations brought 
against Kappa Sigma Fraternity. 

Kappa Sigma was charged with 
kwo rush infractions involving the 
of alcohol. The two allegations 
ere discussed separately with 
liberation from Shawn Bailey, 
idem and representative of IFC, 
and Brian Meaux, president and 
representative of Kappa Sigma. 
The first charge stated that an 

alumnus, possessing alcohol in the 
company of a rushee, went to the 
Tau Kappa Epsilon house. There 
Buddy Hayes (IFC rush chairman), 
and Bailey, cited the violation. The 
second incident dealt with alcohol 
present at the Kappa Sigma house at 
4:00 am during formal rush. Ac- 
cording to the police report no 
rushees were present. 

Joe English, IFC vice-president, 
began the meeting by calling on 
Bailey who gave a brief synopsis 
describing the intent of IFC with the 
implementation of dry rush. "Dry 
rush began two years ago when we 

voted that there would be no alco- 
hol at fraternity houses or any func- 
tion that fraternities would attend. 
When we voted on dry rush this 
year, it was understood that there 
would be no alcohol," reminded 

Meaux countered saying in ref- 
erence to the second charge, "First 
of all there were no rushees there. It 
should have never even been 
brought up in front of IFC. This 
should be handled by Mr. Fulton. 
To me this has nothing to do with 
IFC. Nothing is stated in the rush 
rules. This should be thrown out of 
the door. Rules were broken on 

campus, not with IFC. No one dirty 
rushed or tried to hurt anyone. It 
(constitution/rush rules) doesn ' t say 
itanywhere. The university is going 
to come down on my chapter. It 
shouldn't be IFC." 

Bailey returned,"IFC decided 
two years ago. You need to decide 
whether or not you want it to be. 
There was potential there." 

Commenting from the floor, Eric 
Johnson of Alpha Phi Alpha said, 
"Fact is fact During dry rush, alco- 
hol is not to be served to rushees. 
That is what I understand it to be. 
This is a waste of time. We are not 

dealing what is fact in the 

Bill Veuleman of Sigma Tau 
Gamma commented, "It's for IFC 
to decide if there were any other 
people were there." 

As closing comments Bailey 
cited a panic ular case from last year 
that paralleled this case. 

The board went to a vote in a 
closed session. When it reconve- 
ned, Kappa Sigma was found guilty 
on both charges. The rushee in- 
volved who had previously pledged 
had to depledge. A $ 100.00 fine is 
to be paid to IFC, and Gordon Cruik- 
shank (the alumnus involved) will 

not be able to affiliate. 

Bailey suggested three ideas to 
remedy the illegal rushing situation. 
First, IFC would position one per- 
son at each house at all times; sec- 
ondly, all fraternity men must 
remain at their houses during the 
rush parties and lastly, fraternities 
pledge only those men who have 1 2 
class hours to their credit. 

Bailey concluded by 
saying,"Rumors break apart IFC, 
we really have to work on the 
camaraderie between the fraterni-

For at least the past four years, 
Kappa Sigma has its annual Slave

fundraiser of the chapter is to raise

slave is bought, the buyer has 24 
hours of service given to them buy 
the slave. The 24 hours of service 
can not interfere with class or work. 
The buyer decides what the slave 
has to do for them. The 24 hours 
can be used all at once or can be 
used throughout the semester. 

The auction will take place 
Thursday night at the Kappa Sigma 
House at 7:30. The dress is casual. 
There is no limit to start the bidding. 
All money will be refunded if the 
slave does not do what he is told to 
do within reason. The buyer must

Demons drop second road game, 20-10 


Staff Writer 

Come-from-behind victories 
don't seem to be in the works for 
Northwestern State this year. This 
became evident as the Demons again 
fell victim to an opponent's early 
lead en route to their second straight 
20-10 loss to a team from the Gate- 
way Conference. 

Behind the combined attack of 
junior quarterback Eric Arnold and 
sophomore tailback Jamie Jones, 
Eastern Illinois managed it' s twelfth 
consecutive home opening victory 
Saturday night Arnold passed for 
222 yards and Jones produced 102 
yards to lead the Panthers, who held 
a commanding 10-0 lead after their 
first two possessions. 

"We played hard and played 
good in spurts," said Northwestern ' s 
Sam Goodwin, who will be coach- 
ing his 0-2 team into it's home 
opener against East Texas State this 
week. "We're not putting it to- 
gether yet We're not consistent 
enough on either side of the ball. 

"But I saw enough fight out there 
tonight to know we're going to win 
some games. I still think we can 
win a (Southland Conference) 
championship and go a long way in 
theplayoffs," said Goodwin, whose 
team completed Saturday a seven- 
game road series dating back to last 
season. "It's going to take some 
hard work and rapid improvement. 
It'll be good to be home again." 

The Demons started off strong, 
moving the ball 43 yards in their 
first six plays of the game, only to 
lose a fumble on the EIU 34-yard 
line. On the next play, Eric Arnold 
hit receiver Jason Cook across the 
middle for a 66-yard touchdown 
strike with 12:44 left in the first 
quarter. Cook had a total of four 
catches for 1 18 yards on the night. 

On their very next drive, the 
Panthers scored again, this time with 
a 30-yard field goal by Ray D' Alesio 

to cap off a fifty-yard drive from the 
EIU 37. 

Later in the quarter Demon de- 
fensive end Triand McCoy recov- 
ered a Panther fumble on the NSU 
26 to begin a 56-yard drive ending 
in a 35-yard field goal by Chris 
Hamler to make the score 10-3. The 
biggest play of the drive was a 3rd 
down Stoker-to-John Tappin pass 
for 1 yards to put the demons on the 
EIU 25. Unfortunately, Northwest- 
em running back Kenneth DeWitt 
left the game during the drive with 
an injury, his second of the season. 

The second quarter was a defen- 
sive battle, as neither team was able 
to gain any kind of advantage. The 
Demons only once allowed their 
opponents inside the 30-yard line 
and then stopped them on downs. 
However, NSU was unable to capi- 
talize on their best field position of 
the half , produced when Jason Cook 
fumbled a punt return on the 50- 
yard line. Instead they had to punt 
four plays later after no gain. 

Going into the half, NSU had a 
19:40 to 10:20 time of possession 
advantage, but EIU's 203 yards as 
compared to 102 for the Demons 
helped to support the score. 

A 37-yard return of the second- 
half kickoff by Daryl Holcombe 
sparked Eastern Illinios on 43-yard 
scoring drive that made the score 
17-3. Jamie Jones burst over the 
left side from 15 yards away for the 
touchdown with 1 1:53 showing. 

The Demons were unable to 
answer until the fourth quarter when 
Scott Stoker hit Carlos Treadway 
for 12 yards and the score to pull 
within seven. The play finished off 
an 80-yard, 10-play drive that was 
kept alive by Stoker's 24 yards 
rushing and a 1 5-yard pass interfer- 
ence call. 

The scoring was capped off by a 
D' Alesio field goal with 4:36 left in 
the game. 

The Demons came back with 
two strong drives, but to no avail. 
The first was stopped by a contro- 
versial fumble on the Panther 12- 
yard line by Scott Stoker. The sec- 
ond was cut short with 2:09 left by 
an interception on the 6-yard line. 

"I'd like to have seen that on 
instant replay," said Goodwin. "But 
it typified our offense in our first 
two games. We getin scoring range 
and don ' t have any thing to show for 


"Getting behind early on a mushy 
field was costly. They kept getting 
great field position and we were in 
terrible position most of the night" 

Stoker finished 15 of 27 for 183 
yards, with two interceptions. Al 
Edwards had five catches for 74 
yards and fullback Donny Ford led 
the Demons with 51 yards rushing. 
The Demons netted 295 yards over- 


This week the Demons will be 
hoping for their first victory against 
the Lions of East Texas State. Last 
year Northwestern broke the 500- 
yard total offense mark for the first 
of three times in a rousing 41-13 
domination of the Lions. ETSU's 
only high spots were 44- and 73- 
yard touchdown passes by senior 
Mike Trigg. 

The 2-0 Lions will be coming of f 
a 42-10 trouncing of East Central 
State University of Oklahoma and 
also sporting a 41-24 victory over 
Livingston University. They are 
looking powerful despite the loss 
last week of starting quarterback 
Bob Bounds for to a knee injury. 
Coach Eddie Vowell will be hoping 
to lead his 17th-ranked NCAA 
Division-II team to an improvement 
over last year's 8-3 final mark.

Cross country team looks for stride in 1989 

Staff Writer 

A strong performance by in- 
coming freshman will be the key for 
the NSU men's and women's cross 
country teams to have a good sea- 
son this year. 

The men's team only has two 
returning from last year's squad, 
but is supplemented by four new 
freshmen and one coming off of 
being red-shirted last year. But 
head coach Leon Johnson says that 
this year's new group is more tal- 

Returning to the men's squad 
are junior Mark Troxler and sopho- 
more Dan Ahrens. Joining the group 
are freshmen Kevin Purgin, Tim 
Rippato, Brad Seavers and Ed 
Robarge. Also coming off of red- 
shirt status is Paul Neyman. 

Overall, the men's coaches are 
looking for improvement. "I feel 
like we will improve over last year 
teamwise," said Johnson. "Train- 
ing is going well." 

Part of training wasanintrasquad 
meet held on Sept 7. In the meet, 
freshman Kevin B urgin led the team 
by covering the five-mile course 
with a time of 29:15. Graduate 
assistant coach Robert Ferguson 
said he was most pleased with the 
performances of Paul Neyman 
(30:36) and Burgin. 

"They weren't afraid to take 
control of the race and attack the 
course," said Ferguson. 

Ferguson is a graduate of Adams 
State College in Colorado where he 
was an All- American runner. Coach 
Johnson said he is a great asset 

"As a team we need to have a 
stronger sense of team attitude. We 
were flat from the previous work- 
outs and it showed. We need to be 
more mentally prepared," said 

The women are also looking for 
a better season behind a group of 
new freshmen and a new coach. 

This years squad will be built 
around freshmen. Joining the squad 

are Sonya Williamson, Andrea 
Webber and Diane Dubay. Wil- 
liamson is an All-State performer 
from Ouchita Christian and Webber 
is from St. Joseph's Academy in 
Baton Rouge where she placed 
eighth in the Class A state meet last 

Back from last year are Becky 
Ricks, Denise Miller, Kim Harris 
and top returnee Kate Christmas. 
Women's coach Chris Maggio said 
that the whole team is working hard , 
most ofthem harder than ever be- 

In last weeks intrasquad meet, 
the top performer on the three-mile 
route was freshman Sonya William- 
son with a time of 22:48. Maggio 
was pleased with both Williamson 
and Andrea Webber who finished 
alongside Williamson. 

"They led us through the work- 
out They need to continue to work 
hard and if they do they will have a 
great career at Northwestern," said 

Coach Maggio said that patience 
and a positive attitude were going to 
be very important this year. 

"We are young and I have to 
keep reminding myself that most of 
the team members are freshmen. 
We have been working out together 
everyday and the ladies are looking 
forward to competing against other 
teams," said Maggio.

"A new attitude" is the motto 
for this year's Northwestern Vol- 
leyball squad and they wasted no 
time proving it as the Lady Demons 
rolled to a three game sweep over 
Jackson State in their season opener 
by the scores of 15-1 1, 15-10, and 

Leading the way for the Lady 
Demons was Glasgow, Scotland 
newcomerClaireGilmartin. Kill is 
a violent word, but that's exacUy 
what Gilmartin did...repeatedly. 
She ended the night with 23 kills on 
32 attempts for an incredible .687 

attack percentage. Gilmartin also 
added two service aces ane two 
block assists. 

Helping the effort were Annie 
Bloxson and Sonya Olsen, who 
added 5 and 7 kills respectively. 
Bloxson also added three block 
assists. Setter Sandi Sherill posted 
a team high 28 assists to aid in a 
total team effort. 

"Claire did an excellent job," 
said Lady Demon Coach Rickey 
McCalister. "I was pleased with 
how the team performed consider- 
ing we have only one starter from 
last year in this year's line-up. There 

were times when the inexpert 
of playing together for the first tin 
were evident, but we will impro* 
that with time." 

Two Lady Demons had to del 
their debuts due to injuries. Sopbf 
more Ladine Thomas was sideling 
with a pulled rib cage muscle ai 
sophomore Kelly Banks was haJ 
pered by a hyper-extended shot

^ iecial formula, they just get the

e s, that's right, if you were

S unday , you did hear our school 
tioned. Probably if you stayed 
period of time at all in front of 
u be you heard "Northwestern 
isiana" coming over the CBS 
a ves a good bit. Little by little 
hwestern State University of 
_ isiana is making a name for 
fin the rank with the "big boys. " 
here's no secret formula, says 
liwestern State football coach 
Goodwin, to explain how his 

Division I-AA program has eight 
ex-Demons in high-profile positions 
on opening day (NFL) National 
Football League rosters. 

"There's something about this 
school, I guess, because Northwest- 
em has been turning out guys who 
have been very successful in pro 
ball for a long time," said Goodwin 
last week after the NFL final rosters 
were announced for opening day. 

Yes, once again you would be 
correct in saying three guys in the 
Saints offensive seton Sunday were 
from Northwestern State. All at the 
same time NSU was represented in 
the quarterback, tailback, and wide 
receiver positions. 

Running back Paul Frazier and 
receiver Floyd Turner, members of 
last year's Southland Conference 
championship team at Northwest- 
em State, made the New Orleans 
Saints roster. They joined Saints 
quarterback Bobby Hebert, a rec- 
ord-setting Demon passer from 

1979-82, and helped the former 
"Aims" to a 28-0 lassoing of the 
Dallas Cowboys on opening Sun- 
day in the NFL. 

One thing I know you haven't 
forgotten is the NFL's Rookie of 
the Year last year was NSU power- 
house runner, John Stephens of the 
New England Patriots. Stephens 
left Northwestern as the school's 
career leading rusher. 

Two former standouts from 
Northwestern State and for the New 
York Giants are linebacker Gary 
Reasons and wide-out Odessa 
Turner, were both I-AA All- Ameri- 

Ex-Demon Robert Moore is a

»n Patric DuBois agreed to re- 
' ce retiring coach Johnnie 

mons, making him the second 
men's tennis coach in North- 
jtem history. 
DuBois enters the position with 
impressive background. He has 
rked with the U.S. Tennis 
liciation 's Junior League in New 
rk for seven years, serving as 
S CIS "" «t° r f° r the past three. 

After receiving his masters 
n Kent State, the 23 year-old 
ted as head tennis coach for two 
v York high schools. 


Although he is taking over a 
team returning four players from 
last years Conference champion 
team, DuBois views this year as a 
challenge. "We lost our top two 
seeds (Shayne Fitzwilliams and 
Barbara Tons). It's hard to move up 
two spots at this level," Dubois 

His problems compounded 
when only one of two recruits (Angie 
Johnson) showed up this fall, leav- 
ing the roster short of a player. 
DuBois will try to remedy this prob- 
lem by holding open practice from 
2:30 to 4:30 Monday through Fri- 
day. Anyone interested should 
contact him at the field house or at 
the tennis courts. 

When asked about the ladies on 
the team DuBois said, "We have a 
nice group of young ladies that are 
willing to work hard. Before we 
even started practicing they were 
working on their own a couple hours 
every day, that's dedication."

Stephens is the latest Demon to 
make a splash in the "big-show", 
also he was the second Demon to 
make Rookie of the Year honors 
this decade. Not a bad accomplish- 
ment for any school and a bragging 
right if you're a small college 
competing in I-AA. 

Running back Joe Delaney was 
the 1981 AFC (American Football 
Conference) Rookie of the Year 
with the Kansas City Chiefs. 
Stephens, as Delaney did seven 
years earlier, started as a rookie for 
the AFC in the PRO Bowl last year. 

All of the Demons who are cur- 
rently in the NFL, except for Duper 
and Hebert, played under Good- 
win, who is in his seventh year as 
Northwestern'scoach. Buthe'snot 
about to take credit. 

"It's been happening here for 
years under a lot of different 
coaches," he says. "I don't feel 
particularly responsiblejustlucky." 

It's a fairly impressive output 

from a small school with an enroll- 
ment of 6,455 nestled in the pine- 
covered hills of northwest Louisi- 
ana. Northwestern has to battle 
neighborhood rivals Northeast 
Louisiana, Louisiana Tech, and 
Grambling — and sometimes major 
college power LSU — recruiting 
players in its backyard. 

"It's not like we're a pipeline to 
the pros," admits Goodwin. 
"There's strong competition for the 
top players in our area and we'd like 
to think we get our share." 

"But most of the guys who have 
gone from here to the pros are play- 
ers who weren't recruited in high 
school," he says. "John Stephens, 
Joe Delaney, and Odessa Turner 
were wanted by several schools but 
they're exceptions to the norm." 

Goodwin's open-doorpolicy has 
been a factor. Frazier and Floyd 
Turner, the latest additions to 
Northwestern 's NFL Alumni Club, 
are perfect examples. Both walked 
on at Northwestern and developed 

into stars. 

"Both kids weren't really re- 
cruited out of high school. We 
recruited them as walk-ons," says 
Goodwin, "and told them we were 
pretty sure we'd have some schol- 
arship money down the road but 
said there were no guarantees. They 
took the opportunity and made the 
most of it." 

Turner was a sixth-round draft 
pick. Frazier was a free agent signee 
who lost his academic eligibility 
last spring after playing only two 
seasons with the Demons. He would 
have been a junior this year at 

Turner and Frazier made the most 
of the their chances by showing 
their stuff against the Cowboys. 
Floyd Turner caught two Hebert 
passes for 23 yards. Paul Frazier 
galloped for 74 yards on 12 carries 
and a touchdown in his professional 
debut. Both men showed they had 
the right "ingredients" to make a 
big-time football player.

Making the transitions be- 
tween cultures that is required to 
live in new country can be difficult. 
One advantage that ClaireGilmartin 
has is playing volleyball. 

Claire seems to have made the 
transition very well, at least on the 
volleyball court. In last week's 
victory over Jackson State, she 
proved to everyone what she could 
do with a 23 of 32 performance for 
a .687 hitting percentage, including 
10-11 in the last game of the match. 

"She helped out a lot," said 
Coach Rickey McCalister. "We 
were missing a couple of people, 
and she picked up the slack. Statis- 
tics don't show hustle and best all- 
around game." 

Claire seems to be enjoying 
herself. She said that she felt 
comfortable on the court with the 
other ladies on the team, though she 
did have to make a change in the 
overall style of her game. 

"I just want to prove that I be- 
long in the game every week," said 
Claire. But to her it is also impor- 
tant to have fun. 

"Winning isn'teverything. You 
have to be able to remember the 
good and not dwell on the bad. If 
you're thinking about the mistake 
you made on the last point, then 
you'll mess up on this one too." 

Claire has certainly shown that 
she can make the transition across 
the ocean.

September 12, 19? 

Fall semester enrollment up to almost 7,00 

western State University's fall 
semester enrollment of 6,983 is the 
largest in the school's 105 — year 
history. The record enrollment is 
an 8.2 percent increase over last 
fall's registration count of 6,455. 

NSU Registrar Lynda Tabor 
said, "These are preliminary fig- 
ures that could increase or decline 
slightly before the official enroll- 
ment count is submitted to the Board 
of Trustees next week, but the final 
enrollment will definitely be the 
largest in the history of the institu- 

The previous enrollment record 
at Northwestern was 6,722 in 1 98 1 . 
But the school's student population 

declined after that for five consecu- 
tive years and had dropped to 5,272 
when Dr. Robert Alost became 
president in 1986. 

Enrollment has climbed stead- 
ily under Alost' s leadership, in- 
creasing by 1711 students — or 32.5 
percent — since his first year in 
office. Northwestem's enrollment 
increases over the past three years 
reflect substantial gains in full-time 
students, incoming freshmen and 
registration on the main campus in 

President Alost said, "The 
University's faculty and staff de- 
serve the credit for this fall's record 
enrollment and the healthy increase 
in student population over the past 

three years. They have worked 
tirelessly to attract and retain out- 
standing students." 

Alost also said, "aggressive and 
extensive recruitment campaign has 
obviously yielded great benefits, 
but dedicated faculty and staff 
members have been deeply involved 
in making Northwestern the kind of 
quality institution that young people 
want to attend." 

Northwestem's full-time count 
of 4,6 12 this fall is an increase of 10 
percent over the 1988 enrollment 
of 4,171 to 4,674. 

Undergraduate enrollment, 
which included increases in fresh- 

man, sophomore, junior and senior 
classes, is up by 9,8 percent over 
last year from 5,757 to 6,319. The 
number of full-time undergraduate 
students climbed by 4 1 7 from 4,046 
to 4,463. 

Alost said the increase in all four 
undergraduate classes "underscores 
both the success of recruitment 
programs and the effectiveness of 
retention efforts at the university." 

Freshman enrollment, following 
a 31.6 percent gain over the past 
two years, is up another 4.7 percent 
from 3,107 last year to 3,252, the 
largest number of freshmen in the 
school's history. 

Sophomore enrollment increased 

Alost answers registration criticism 

Stuff Writer 

How about them lines in regis- 
tration? Thirty minutes to give them 
money. Another fifteen to get an ID 
card. Don't forget the two hours of 
waiting just to get inside to the 
ballroom's lines. The financial aid 
line was longer than the outside 
line. Oh, and for those of us in 
Rapides and Sabine, some toilets 
don ' t work, no paper , and the room s 
are either unbearably cold or scorch- 
ing hot never really comfortable. 
And you teachers out there, all you 
service workers, all those who 
complain of being understaffed who 
do you complain to? 

That's right— Dr. Robert Alost, 
President of Northwestern State 

Alost admits that the system, 
"needs to be improved dramati- 
cally," and that "there really 

shouldn't be any lines at registra- 
tion." Realizing that the student 
body consists of, in the neighbor- 
hood of, 6,500 students and larger 
universities like LSU and UNO 
handle that many to register in a 
day, the system is flawed. The prob- 
lems will be dealt with I am told. 

According to Dr. Alost, the year 
is going fairly well, however, the 
problem areas include under- 
staffing, too few of teachers, too of 
low salaries for teachers and serv- 
ice workers. Education is just not 
on the minds of Louisiana's citi- 
zens. We are now ranked last in 
literacy, the students pay too much 
with respect to other states, and 
there needs to be some change. 

Did you know that the state pays 
around $2,000 per student in Lou- 
isiana? The state average in our 
section of the country is near $4 ,000 

"Steel Magnolias" 
tickets on sale now 

requests are now being accepted by 
mail order only for the Nov. 10 
Natchitoches Premiere of Steel 
Magnolias , the Rastar production 
which was filmed here last sum- 

Steel Magnolias, a Tri-Star 
Pictures presentation, is a bitter- 
sweet comedy about six Southern 
women and how they touch each 
other's lives over the course of two 
years. The screenplay, written by 
Natchitoches playwright Robert 
Harling, is bossed on his award- 
winning off-Broadway play. 

Herbert Ross directed the film, 
which was produced by Ray Stark. 
Steel Magnolias stars Sally Field, 
Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, 
Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis 
and Julia Roberts. 

The Natchitoches Premiere — 
one of four early screenings of the 
film nationwide — is scheduled for 
the Parkway Cinema, and proceeds 
will go to the Northwestern State 
University Foundation. 

Tickets for the Tri-Star Pictures 
release are $50 each. They may be 
obtained only by mailing checks or 
money orders made out to the NSU 
Foundation to Steel Magnolias, Box 
5555, Northwestern State Univer- 
sity, Natchitoches, La. 71457. The 
$50 per ticket cost will cover mail- 
ing and handling charges. 

The Parkway Cinema on Key- 
ser Avenue in Natchitoches has four 
screens and a seating capacity of 
more than "700. Some 1 ,400 people 
can be accommodated for the 
Natchitoches Premiere, which will 
feature showings at 6:30 p.m. and 
9:30 p.m. 

Premiere tickets will also serve 
as admission for a gala "Natchito- 
ches Goes Hollywood" party sched- 
uled for Prather Coliseum from 7 
p.m. until 11p.m. The premiere 
party will be highlighted by a wide 
variety of foods, beverages and en- 

Response to the Natchitoches 
Premiere has been overwhelming 
since the date for the event was 
announced several weeks ago, and 
ticket orders will be filled on a first- 
come, first-served basis. 

Ticket applications may include 
requests for either the 6:30 or 9:30 
screening, and those requests will 
be honored if possible. Individuals 
who have no preference as to which 
show to attend should not specify a 
screening time in their applications. 

Applications will be processed 
only if accompanied by checks or 
money orders. There will be no 
reserved seating for the premiere, 
but tickets will specify early or late 
showing and admittance to one of 
the four theaters in the Parkway 
Cinema complex. 

Other premiers of Steel Magno- 
lias, which Natchitochesplay wright 
Robert Harling adapted for the 
screen from his highly-acclaimed 
stage comedy, are scheduled for 
Nov. 5 in New York, Nov. 6 in 
Atlanta and Nov. 9 in Los Angeles. 

Northwestern Vice-Presidentof 
External Affairs Jerry Pierce, co- 
chairman of the Natchitoches Pre- 
miere, said, "The premiere of such 
a monumental film as Steel Mag- 
nolias is a major event in the his- 
tory of Natchitoches and North- 
western, and we are deeply grateful 
to Producer Ray Stark for making 
the local premiere possible." 

He added, "Ray appreciated the 
assistance and cooperation of the 
university and the community in 
the filming of Steel Magnolias and 
his generous commitment to have a 
premiere in Natchitoches and con- 
tribute the proceeds to a scholar- 
ship fund at Northwestern reflects 
his gratitude." 

NSU Journalism Professor Tom 
Whitehead, also co-chairman of the 
premiere, said, "The Natchitoches 
Premiere will bring Hollywood to 
North Louisiana not just on the 
screen but also at the premiere 
party, which will feature foods, 
beverages and entertainment with a 
California flair." 

Individuals who receive tickets 
for the early showing will attend 
the party at 8:30, and those who go 
to the 9:30 screening of Steel Mag- 
nolias may attend the party from 7 
p.m. until time for the showing. 
There will be a brief program at 
approximately 8:45 when both 
groups are in Prather Coliseum for 
the party. 

A television documentary of the 
filming of Steel Magnolias is being 
produced and will be playing on 
monitors during the prem iere party. 
Dress for the party and the movie 
premiere is black tie optional. 

Gov. and Mrs. Buddy Roemer 
and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Harling of 
Natchitoches, parents of the play- 
wright, have been asked to serve as 
honorary chairmen of the Natchi- 
toches Premiere. 

per student The problem is the lack 
of money. The price tag for a better 
Louisiana is astronomical. The 
cause of this problem is neglect. 

To paraphrase Dr. Alost, ' it is 
something like our road situation, if 
we had maintained them with a little 
money, there would not be a need to 
replace them with a lot of money." 
Several of our buildings are in des- 
perate need of repair. The intermu- 
rals building is in terrible shape. 
Kyserishavineitsoroblems. Sabine, 
and Rapides are disgusting in com- 
parison to other facilities on cam- 

Finding solutions to these prob- 
lems is the big problem. Help from 
the state is a must. The possibility 
of using bonds is being tossed 
around. The tuition is probably 
going to go up. It always does. The 
administration is looking at differ- 

ent solutions. If you have a remedy 
that may not have been explored, 
write to Dr. Alost or Mr. Fulton. If 
it is simply criticism without solu- 
tions, work on it, and see if you can 
figure out a solution. Constantly 
telling someone the stove is on fire 
without helping to put it out is no 
heb at all. 

Dr. Robert Alost, 
president of North- 
western: "The [regis- 
tration] system need to 
be improved dramati- 
cally. There really 
shouldn't be any lines 
at registration."

Pianos Needed 

The music division of the De- 
partment of Creative and Perform- 
ing Arts at NSU needs used or restor- 
able pianos which c ould be donated 
to the department for use by stu- 
dents in practice facilities. 

"Our department has grown so 
much in the last few years that we 
now have many more students than 
pianos to fill their practice needs." 
said Bill Brent, director of bands 
and chairman of the Department of 
Creative and Performing Arts. 

Brent said that if anyone has a 
piano and would be interested in 
donating it to Northwestern, they 
should contact Brent at (318) 357- 

"We will accept pianos in just 
about any condition, as long as they 
can be restored at a reasonable cost," 
stated Brent.

Pearl Bailey, donning a black 
lace dress, opened her concert 
Thursday night in Prather Coliseum 
not with a song, but with that sassy 
sense of humor that has helped make 
her famous. 

"This town's about as big as the 
one I come from," the singer and 
lecturer said of Natchitoches. She 
joked about the pronunciation of 
the name "Natchitoches" and had 
the whole audience laughing right 
along with her. 

Bailey's opening song was a 
rendition of "On the Road Again," 
which contained a medley of songs 
including, 'The Eyes of Texas," 
"Moon Over Miami" and "Autumn 
in New York." 

Bailey 's array of songs through- 
out the concert included "Someone 
Who Will Watch Over Me," "Think 
of Me," "So Easy to Love," and a 
special tribute of "Unforgettable" 
in honor of Nat King Cole. She 
receivedextracheers when she sang 
"Won't You Come Home Bill 
Bailey," which is perhaps the song 

she is most famous for singing. 

Between songs, Bailey enter- 
tained the audience with a bit of tap 
dancing, fussing at the light techni- 
cian for not keeping the spotlight 
on her, and by making fun of her 
band members, particularly the 
pianist. She did, however, compli- 
ment the band later by saying to the 
audience, "I brought you the best." 

Though an intermission was not 
included in the program, Bailey did 
take a break and allowed her band 
members to "show their stuff." The 
bass player did a solo followed by 

an extremely long, although im- 
pressive drum solo, which left no 
time for individual performances 
by the guitarist or the pianist. 

As a whole, the audience re- 
sponded enthusiastically through- 
out the concert to Bailey's dynamic 
personality. Bailey, herself, com- 
mented that she was "having a lot 
of fun." 

Afterclosing with "Hello Dolly," 
Bailey received a standing ovation. 
She then sang "It Takes Two to 
Tango," "Still Serving Time," and 
a song for the adult sense of humor 
called, "Since I Became a Hussy for 
my Husband." 

After Bailey received another 
standing ovation, she spoke about a 
time when she was dying but recov- 
ered and gained a new faith in God. 
"I guess there was still something 
for me to do here," Bailey said. The 
audience then joined her in singing 
the refrain to "Mine Eyes Have Seen 
The Glory ," which she sings at every 
concert now. 

After a short lecture about the 
educational system in America, 
child abuse and young people' s lack 
of respect for their parents and for 
the old, Bailey closed the concert 
with a few old-time gospel songs. 

During her performance of 
"Climbing Jacob's Ladder," the 
NSU basketball time buzzer went 
off, interrupting Bailey. Bailey, 
turning to her band members, said, 
"What kind of place are we playing 

Attempting to ignore the con- 
tinuing noise from the buzzer, Bailey 
finished the song and waved to the 
audience. "God bless you all!" she

Noted singer, actress, and lecturer Pearl Bailey caused quite a stir when she appeared at 
Northwestern last week. With her often blunt remarks and frank social commentary, she 
sparked a variety of reactions across campus. 

Writer learns to listen at Bailey lecture 

Staff Writer 

"Turn that tape off, darling," she 
said as she looked at me. I couldn' t 
believe it! There I was, sitting in an 
auditorium full of freshmen and 
Pearl Bailey was speaking to me. 

For several days, I had prepared 
to cover my first celebrity lecture. I 
had borrowed my friend's tape 
recorder and had planned to sit in 
the very front of the auditorium. So 
why was I placing my tape recorder, 
reporter's notebook, and pen on the 

Just before she reprimanded me, 
Bailey had talked about how many 
people listen but do not hear. "The 

time you walk into your class, your 
head goes down , your pencil comes 
up, you open your composition, 
and you start to write, and write, 
and write and you never lift your 
head till you leave." stated Bailey. 
"What a pity. It should be a sin!" 
According to Bailey, a student 
should not rely on notes but on 
himself. So with me as an example, 
she continued her lecture. 

Within the course of an hour she 
spoke on many subjects dealing 
from religion tocultures. She spoke 
about how in the Middle East the 
people will maintain eye contact 
during a conversation, but in 
America the majority of people will 

look at a person ' s ears, mouth , nose, 
and hair. "While a man is talking to 
you, you are busy looking all over 
his face instead of listening and 
hearing of what he' s really try ing to 
say to you," she commented. 

On the topic of religion, Bailey 
feels that you should practice what 
you preach. A person is not reli- 
gious unless he practices religion. 
Then, she discussed the symbols 
which she wore: the Christian 
Cross, the Star of David, and a 
verse from the Holy Koran. 

Around the end of the lecture, I 
noticed that I was not listening but 
hearing. I heard Bailey speak from 
her heart about the subjects which 

concerned her and should concern 
others. Not only did she get me to 
hear, but she managed to send 
everyone in that auditorium home 
with real thoughts in their heads. 
Her manners in speaking may be 
different from most people, but she 
did get her point across. 

When the lecture was over, I 
went up to the stage to meet her. As 
I handed my address to her, she told 
me that she was going to give me a 
pen. Well, she has given me much 
more than that. By giving me the 
ability to rely on myself and not on 
others, she taught me a little more 
about myself. I no longer listen, I 
hear. Thank you, Pearl Bailey. 

Alumni schedule Homecoming events 

Staff Writer 

"The four objectives of the 
Alumni Association is to get alumni 
together, help recruit students to 
NSU, to promote a positive image 
of NSU, and to raise funds for the 
association's yearly membership 
drive," enthused Elise James, Co- 
ordinator of External Affairs. 

Through donations, recruiting 
and involvment, Northwestern 's 

alumnae have become the lifeline 
of the University, and have fulfilled 
their objectives. 

During the fall, alumni have a full 
itinerary. Each away game is pre- 
ceded with an alumni party in that 
town to generate spirit and to get the 
alumnae in that city together to 
support the Demons. San Marcus is 
the sight of the next alumni get 
together. Homecoming is on the 
top of the alumni agenda with fes- 

tivities beginning on Thursday , Oct. 
5, through Saturday, Oct. 7, culmi- 
nating the weekend with the battle 
between the Demons and the Golden 

The 50th reunion of the 1939 
undefeated football team will kick- 
off the Homecoming activities in 
the Student Union Ballroom at 
7:00pm. Thursday Oct 6, brings an 
Alumni golf tournament at the W. 
Wilson Sr. Recreation Complex, 

beginning at 1:00pm. The 
President's Room in the Student 
Union is the sight of the Alumni 
and Foundation Board Meeting at 
3:00pm. Concluding the day is a 
Jambalaya Dinner complete with 
the NSU yell leaders, entertainment, 
and as special guests, the 1983 
football team.

Students residing on 
campus woke up to a sur- 
prise last week when they 
discovered that their ve- 
hicles had been painted with 
spirit slogans in prepara- 
tion for the first home foot- 
ball game. 

With the help of Dr. 
Robert Alost, caught here 
in the act (right), the Stu- 
dent Activities Board was 
responsible for the mobile 
graffiti which was not only 
seen across campus but all 
over town.

Allen receives negative responses 

Dear Editor, 

I feel compelled to respond to 
Mr. Robert Allen ' s opinion entitled 
"Flag burning amendment fairly 
harmless" There are millions of 
patriotic American Veterans and 
their supporters who take great 
exception to the recent Supreme 
Court ruling allowing our flag to be 
desecrated merely as an expression 
of free speech. Millions have fought 
and shed their blood to protect the 
basic American belief in freedom. 
Thousands more gave the ultimate 

Our flag is the basic symbol of 
the American way of life, of the 
freedoms we hold so dear. It is an 
insult to me and all veterans to 
compare our flag to something 
which is "merely fabric." Further- 
more, drawing an analogy of the 
fable William Tell to the current 
issue of our flag is totally inappro- 
priate. William Tell is a legend; an 
un verifiable story handed down by 

The flag of the United States and 
what it stands for is written in our 
history — the issue of allowing it to 
be irreverently handled is real. The 
issue cuts to the heart and gut of an 
obvious majority of Americans. Mr. 

Allen's timing was also incredibly 
callous; just before Military Appre- 
ciation Day on Sept 16 as well as 
National POW/MIA week. 

Itis far more appropriate to quote 
some verse written by William Tyler 
Page entitled "The Americans 

"I believe in the United States of 
America as a government of the 
people, by the people, for the people; 
whose just powers are derived from 
the consent of the governed; a 
democracy in a Republic; a sover- 
eign Nation of many sovereign 
States; a perfect Union, one and 
inseparable; established upon these 
principles of freedom, equality, 
justice, and humanity for which 
American patriots sacrificed their 
lives and fortunes. 

"I therefore believe it is my duty 
to my Country to love it; to support 
its Constitution; to obey its laws; to 
respect its flag; and to defend it 
against all enemies." 

For the moment, the Supreme 
Court has ruled that it is not against 
the law to allow people to think and 
act any way they please regarding 
our flag. Mr. Allen certainly en- 
courages such thought and action 

by comparing a groundswell in favor 
of an amendment to override this 
decision to "Gessler's hat trick." 
Obviously, he hasn't watched or 
doesn't care about the rage and 
delight with which international 
terrorists mock our flag. 

Why do you think this is so? 
Seems to me our flag must convey 
a powerful anti-terrorist meaning. 

Mr. Allen, I am not implying 
that we should be above the law in 
honoring our flag. However, like 
many others I am exercising my 
basic freedom of speech in con- 
demning an ill considered ruling 
and stating that it should be 
amended. You may argue that an 
amendment will establish a danger- 
ous precedent leading to other rights 
depleting amendments. I can be 
equally adamant by saying that the 
line must be drawn somewhere or 
we will eventually lose all of the 
beliefs and values that made this 
country what it is — the freest nation 
on earth. If we don't stop the ero- 
sion of such basic beliefs that our 
flag symbolizes liberty under the 
law — we will go the way of the 
Roman Empire, only much quicker.

An Englishman 

Michael Thorne 


Reader astonished at ignorance 

Dear Editor, 

In response to Robert Allen's 
letter concerning the flag burning 
issue, I am truly amazed at the igno- 
rance spawned in the minds of so- 
called scholars and intellectuals. 
This "non-issue," as you call it, may 
not be as important as other issues 
facing our President, but is one that 
can be readily resolved (unlike the 
deficit, homelessness, and the lack 
of ethics in Congress members). 

Such a resolution will provide 
direction for flag-burners and pro- 
tectors alike. Why not solve the 
problems that have answers instead 
of disregarding them to continue to 
a process that bureaucracy will cause 
to linger beyond our lifetimes any- 
way. In other words, handle the 
simple immediately for the difficult 
will still be waiting when you are 

The comparison of the statute 
prohibiting flag burning to the 
oppression of the freedoms of Wil- 
liam Tell is without validation in 

the most basic sense. This statute 
does not call for one to "bow" to the 
flag as was demanded of our fabled 
hero. The law does not even require 
an oath of allegiance to be taken; 
nor does it require any obeisance to 
the flag other than the respect for its 
representation of the freedoms of 
Americans and those who died 
protecting those freedoms. 

Ponder the idiocy of the act of 
flag burning. A man stands on a 
street corner in Anywhere, USA, 
burning that which symbolizes his 
right to bum. He doesn't stop to 
realize that in many other nations, 
his acts would be quickly recog- 
nized with a bullet in the head. Yet, 
he still burns his only 
symbol of his freedom to burn. 

Such a cry for attention from an 
obviously confused and frustrated 
individual should earn him some 
attention, perhaps psychiatric or 
judicial. It is not conceivable for 
man, with all his powers and assets, 
to remain in a place where he is so 

unhappy. He who willfully does so 
is lacking some of the basic facul- 
ties he was given at birth. 

The United States is truly a land 
of the free, but it would not be so if 
it were nr Tor those men who made 
the sacrifices of defending it As a 
defender of this great nation, I am 
very proud to salute Old Glory 
whenever I have the opportunity. I 
hope that my nation will honor me 
and those who serve with me by 
keeping Old Glory safe as we have 
tried to do by offering our blood for 
the freedoms that beautiful banner 

Mr. Allen, if you truly feel op- 
pressed by not being allowed to 
destroy our symbol of freedom , then 
I suggest you move to another coun- 
try and compare the degrees of 
oppression. If you choose to remain 
in this great country, then I further 
suggest that you steer clear of all 
partriots when you burn or the 
oppression you feel may not be so 

Don "Slash" Williams 

While the Demons slaughtered 
the East Texas Lions on Saturday 
night, I paid more attention to the 
crowd than the players. The specta- 
tors showed me the American ob- 
session with sports, based, I pre- 
sume, on the idea of winning, which 
is so much a part of American cul- 
ture and the American dream. 

Not only was it invigorating to 
watch the violence on the field, 
both legal and illegal, it was also 
interesting from a sociological point 
of view to observe the pomp and 
circumstance surrounding a small 
university's first home game of the 

After a standing ovation for the 
National Anthem (this practice is 
not as common in Europe), three 
US AF F- 14 fighter planes appeared 

out of nowhere and zoomed over 
the stadium with a roar so loud that 
we felt our ear drums would ex- 

Were Princess Di or Fergie to 
give birth, the Royal Air Force might 
do the same kind of thing; but the 
only pomp and circumstance sur- 
rounding a soccer game at an Eng- 
lish university would be the cheers 
of the 23 spectators. 

The European, while keen on 
sports, can usually find something 
better to do than watch it. The 
American watches the Bears and 
the Dodgers playing games, while 
the end of his short life races to- 
wards him. 

Even the President of the USA 
throws the first pitch of the baseball 
season by tradition. 


Has the most powerful im 
ual in the Western World noj 
more urgent matters to deal 
than baseball? Such as: healtl 
education; the fact that every 
try on the planet has been b; 
foradecade, yet we'reall still 
military toys which are pure! 
fensive and will 'never be 
anyway; the ecological cris 
starving millions; global w 
the fuel crisis; the foreign wars 
funded by the White House and' 
Kremlin, causing unimagiro- 
suffering to innocent people 
have not even heard of America 1 
Russia; global nuclear disarm; 
the future of the human race: 
etc, ad infinitum.

The ABC's of Wellness 

Part two in a series 

Any candidate for an SG A positio 
wishing to run a campaign an 
nouncement over the air, conta[ 
Bill Schneider at KNWD, 5693. 

Your shoulders are tense, your 
back hurts. You feel grouchy and 
know it' s all due to stress. What can 
you do? The relaxation techniques 
described below can help relieve 
both the physical and emotional 
tension that often follows stressful 

The next time you feel the ef- 
fects of too much stress, try some of 
the following ways to help you re- 

1. Deep Breathing. While sit- 
ting, lying down, or standing, close 

your eyes and breathe in slowly. 
Let the breath out for a count of 5- 
10 seconds. Take ten of these su- 
per-relaxers any time you feel tense. 

2. Stretching. Practice simple 
stretches such as the "neck stretch": 
stretch your neck by gently rolling 
your head in a half-circle, starting at 
one side, then dropping your chin to 
your chest, then to the other side. 

3. Exercise. All kinds of physi- 
cal activity — hiking, running, 
bowling, walking, etc. — help to 
reduce stress. 

4. Take a bath. Ask household 
members to allow you at least 30 
minutes of uninterrupted time. 

5. Get a massage. A massage is 
a wonderful way to get rid of physi- 
cal tension. Professional masseuses 
generally take 30 minutes to an hour, 
and will work on specific areas of 
tension, such as lower back or neck. 

6. Eat Well. Reduce caffeine (in 
coffee, black tea, chocolate) and 
alcohol intake. Find out if your diet 
is well-balanced, and take steps to 
eat healthily to help reduce stress. 

A letter from Vic 

Vic the Demon 

First of all I would like to say, 
"Let's hear it for your Demons!" 
You did a great job. We made some 
mistakes but we got the win and 
that's what counts. Preseason is 
over and the battle now begins to 
reclaim the SLC championship. As 
easy as it may be to do, we can't 
overlook teams and think North 
Texas and Stephen F. Austin are the 

only ones we need to worry about. 
Any team can beat you including 
McNeese. In order to be SLC champ 
you must beat every team one at a 
time. You can do it. 

Fan turn out was pretty good for 
NOISE!" Get involved. Follow the 
yelleaders. Quit sitting down and 
enjoy the game. Have fun. Great 

job Kappa Sigma on winning the 
spirit stick. I want it to continue. I 
want even more support for the 
Greeks. You say you are leaders so 
show me. Here is a novel idea, 
cheer with the yelleaders. You all 
did great. Let's do better and send 
the Cowboys back to the ranch. 


Relaxing your emotions can be 
just as important as relaxing your 
body in relieving stress. 

1. Talk. Take the time to talk 
with a friend, mate or child. Ex- 
press feelings you might have been 
holding in. Listen carefully to your 
partner. Walking in a quiet neigh- 
borhood or park can limit distrac- 

2. Laugh. Go to a comedy club, 
see a funny movie, or spend time 
with a funny friend. 

3. Cry. Crying can be as good a 
release as laughing. If you haven't 
cried in a long time, try listening to 
sad music, watching a sad movie or 
writing about a sad experience. 

4. Read. A good book is a great 
escape. Reading a tear-jerker or 
comedy can help release pent-up 

5. Do something you love. When 
you enjoy yourself, whether it's 
gardening, going to the beach, or 
seeing friends, you relax your 

These are just a few stress re- 
ducers you can try. You can create 
your own healthy stress reducers 
(without alcohol or drugs), or use 
those listed above. You'll feel better 
and stay healthier if you do.

The future of Northwestern and 
its student government hinges on 
the development of new and unique 
ideas. As an incoming freshman, I 
see many projects that I would like 
to implement. With your help, we 
can forge ahead into the changing 
times. Give the freshman class a 
dedicated voice in student govern- 
ment, elect Leslie Blake, freshman 

Within the month that /' ve been 
a student here at Northwestern V ve 
seen many things, some good, some 
bad. Everyone, of course, will try 
to change the bad things, but who 
will try to make the good better? I 
will strive to solve problems here 
on campus, but I will also do my 
best to work at making the best 
better. I'd appreciate the time and 
effort to vote for me, Chad M elan- 


My reasons for running f\ 
Freshman Senator are as simple & 
they are common. I feel there, a* 
many lessons to be learned outsit 
of the college classrooms, and lU 
the real reasons for college are nt 
all in the textbooks. I feel I ha* 
something to offer the Universil. 
and S.GA. Throughout my hi$ 
school days, I have been involved) 
student government, it: some fori 
or the other, and my experience 
have led me to minor in Politic* \fy n(u

I, Shelly Benson, am seeking the 
position of Sophomore Senator 
because I feel I can assist the stu- 
dents of NSU in a manner all stu- 
dents require. Having served as 
Freshman Senator I have gained 
the experience necessary to repre- 
sent my classmates well. If elected 
I am certain Ican adequately fulfil I 
the duties of my office. Thank you 
for considering me as your Sopho- 
more Senator. 

If you haven't noticed, 
Northwestern' s enrollment is at its 
highest in recent years. Because of 
this large increase in students, many 
accommodations will have to be 
made in order to deal with these 
positive changes. My name is 
Marcus Foote, and after being a 
member of the student body for one 
year, I have already experienced a 
difference in rules and regulations. 
I would like to take the opportunity 
SGA would give me as Sophomore 
Senator and help promote the opin- 
ions of the students as this transi- 
tion occurs. On Wednesday, Sep- 
tember 20, vote Marcus Foote, for 
Sophomore Senator. 

The Student Government Asso- 
ciation serves as a link between the 
students and the administration; 
senators elected must be a voice for 
the students of Northwestern. I feel 
that senators must express the con- 
cerns of students as well as pass 
legislation to benefit the studnets.

Home sweet home: Demons victorious, 38- 14 


St^ff Writer 

The home field proved to be the 
charm that was needed this past 
week as the Northwestern State 
Demons racked up their first win of 
the season and their fourth straight 
home opener with a 38-14 victory 
over Division II power East Texas 
State University. 

"We got a win. That was the 
biggest thing," said coach Sam 
Goodwin while his team celebrated 
their first home game after seven on 
the road and and the end of a three- 
game losing streak. 

The 1-2 Demons weren't par- 
ticularly sharp, he said Sunday. 
Northwestern suffered through 14 
penalties for 120 yards, including 
two which erased touchdown passes 
by Scott Stoker of 48 yards to Al 
Edwards and 28 yards to Carlos 
Tread way. 

"We didn't play well,*' said 
Goodwin. "Sure, we improved 
some, but not as much as we'll need 
to for this next game. We might 
have been revved up by playing in 
front of the home crowd and have 
been trying to do too much." 

The Demon offense rolled up 
241 yards rushing while quarter- 
back Scott Stoker passed for 1 26 for 
a total offensive put-out of 367 
yards. Standouts on offense in- 
cluded freshman quarterback Brad 
Brown with 76 yards and one touch- 
down on four rushes and Al Ed- 
wards with 74 yards on four recep- 

"Our inside running game was 
strong. The line did a good job of 
run blocking and we were able to 
control the ball and the clock," said 
Goodwin. "We were able to get 
yards consistently inside. Our run- 
ning backs ran well. Wedidn'tpass 
protect very well." 

The defense allowed the Lion 
offense 33 1 total yards, with half of 
that coming in East Texas' little too 
little, little too late fourth quarter 
rally. Andre Carron led the team 
with eight tackles, while Rob Floyd 
and Ken Bucy followed up with 6 
and 5 , respectively, and both Randy 
Hilliard had pass interceptions. 

"Defensively we made some 
great hits and had real good effort, 
but the execution wasn't near wha 
it should be," said the Demon'; 
coach. "We still have a long way: 
to go." 

"I thought East Texas was bette 
than they were last year, so this i: 
probably equally as impressive ; 
victory," he said. "It may be evei 
better when you consider all th< 
penalties helped hold our scon 

The Demons, believes Goodwin 
are as good as they were last year a 
this point in the season. 

"There's not much difference 
between this team and last year's 
except we've had a tougher this 
season. That's why we're not 2- loi 

The Demons scored on their firsi 
possession and three different times 
in the first half to build a 17-0 half- 
time lead. The first was a 10-yard 
battle won by tailback James 
McKellum. That was followed by a 
32-yard Chris Hamler field goal. 
Two plays later, cornerback Randy 
Hilliard returned an interception 4 1 
yards to set up the Demon's next 
drive, capped by a Donny Ford 4- 
yard run. 

NSU came out showing the same 
power after halftime, pushing 64 
yards in twelve plays and scoring 
on fullback Pete Ellis' first of two 
rushing TD's in the half. 

With 7:11 left in the game, 
ETSU's first touchdown made the 
score 31-6, as the two-point con- 
version failed. 

Barely two minutes later, the 
Demon's finished a 50-yard drive 
with Brad Brown's 31 -yard dash 
into the end zone. Brown totaled 48 
yards on this drive and all of his 76 
in the fourth quarter. 

The Lions managed one more 
score, this time completing the two- 
point conversion, but it wasn't 
enough to put them back in the 

This week, the Demon's hope to 
carry the momentum of their vic- 
tory into their first conference battle 
when they face the McNeese State 
Cowboys. The 2-1 cowboys will be 
coming off of a 17-14 loss to con- 
ference rival Northeast, while 
Northwestern will be hoping to 
repeat last year's 20-25 victory in 

Lake Charles. 

"They're like a wounded tiger. 
They have one life left in the con- 
ference race so they'll be tougher 
than ever for our game," said coach 
Goodwin. "But we'll be ready, too. 
Conference play is everything to 
us. You've got to win your home 
games and do well on the road like 
we did last year. This is our first 

NSU will have to contend with a 
potent MSU attack. The Cowboys 
have a 348.3 yard per game offense 
that ranks in the top three in the 
conference in three different cate- 
gories along with leading in both 
punt and kickoff return yardage. 
Their defense is allowing only 9 1 .7 
yards per game. 

One of the Cowboys most potent 
threats is tailback Troy Jones, who 
has returned three punts for touch- 
downs this season (the national 
record is four). Joining him will be 
tailback Tony Citizen, who has five 
rushing touchdowns this year. 

The Demons wili be expecting 
to combat these threats with the 
return of center Bill Britt, tackle 
David Hodges, safety Pat Clark and 
tight end Glenn Moore, all coming 
off of recent injuries.

Chicken pox downs Demons 

Sports Editor 

After watching Saturday night's 
Demon football victory one of the 
first things I thought about was that 
we played an entire game virtually 
without a serious injury. Just what 
the doctor ordered as we head into 
this weekend's matchup with 
McNeese State in Southland Con- 
ference play. Also great when you 
think that everyone would be ready 
but Kenneth Dewitt, the starting 
tailback out after having arthro- 
scopic surgery this past week on his 

But then disaster would strike in 
the form of the dreaded chicken 
pox. Two defensive starters have 
contracted chicken pox and are 
almost certain to miss Saturday's 
Southland Conference opener at 
Turpin Stadium. 

Strong safety Steve Compton, a 
preseason All-American, and de- 
fensive end Willie Brooks are in 
isolation until Saturday, North west- 
em athletic trainer Ed Evans re- 
ported Monday. 

No other cases of chicken pox 
have been reported on the North- 
western campus. Compton and 
Brooks will be examined Saturday 
by a doctor but are "pretty defi- 
nitely out. I would think, "said 

Demon head coach Sam Goodwin. 

The two players are roommates 
in the campus dormitory. Evans 
said he had no idea how the players 
contracted the chicken pox virus. 

"Chickens, I guess," Evans 

Freshman fullback Donnie Ford, 
Northwestem's top rusher with 117 
yards, has been exposed to the virus

Rain slows down tennis team 

Sports Writer 

Demon's Tennis began the first of 
their Fall trials last weekend by 
competing in the University of 
Arkansas Little Rock Tennis Tour- 

NSU's Karen Patel, Jane Patter- 
son and Angie Johnson collected 
first round wins in the singles 
bracket. All victories came in 
straight sets. 

Patel and Patterson suffered 
second round losses before the e ight 
team tournament fell victim to a 
rain delay Friday afternoon. 
The rain eliminated the consola- 

tion bracket and also denied 
Johnson's second round match. 

In Doubles action, Patel and 
Patterson advanced to the quarterfi- 
nals before losing to the host team 
in straight sets. 

" I thought the team played well 
overall," said head coach Patric 

" We fell behind in a couple of 
matches early and came back but it 
was too late. Several of our losses 
went three sets but we ran out of 
steam in that final set. We have 
only been practicing acouple weeks 
and I thought we did well." said

Louisiana Tech's men and 
L'SL'.s women won the team titles 
and Northwestern State finished 
second in both divisions Thursday 
at the Demon Invitational cross 
country meet. 

James Tcrrcl ran a 20: 17 time 
over the four-mile men's course to 
pace the Bulldog's victory. Tech 
scored 20 points, Northwestern had 
35 and Centenary finished with 60 
in the men's competition. 

USL's Cathy Asevedo covered 
the two-mile women's course in 
1 2:34 and led the Lady Cajuns to an 
11 -point win, 30-41 , over the Lady 

Demons. Louisiana Tech was third 
at 56 points and Centenary had 96 
in the fall's first meet. 

Northwestem's top male finisher 
was Kevin Burgin, third with a 
20:47 clocking. Sonya Williamson 
had the Lady Demon's top time, 
12:58, and placed fifth overall. 

"I'm very pleased with the ef- 
fort," said Northwestern men's 
cross country coach Robert 
Ferguson. "It was the best job they 

could have done. They ran hard 
from start to finish with more deter- 
mination than I've seen . . . just a 
super job." 

"We handled the first meet very 
well," said Lady Demon coach 
Chris Maggio. "I was extremely 
pleased with Sonya. Becky Ricks 
( 14:3 1 , 1 2th place) ran the best race 
of her life. The whole team from 
one through seven ran well. We are 
where we hoped to be at this point."

It was a week of ups and downs 
for the Lady Demon volleyball team 
as they pushed their record to 2-1 
with a loss to Louisiana Tech and a 
victory over Alcorn State. 

Tuesday the ladies met a hard 
barrier in the Lady Bulldogs at 
Prather coliseum. Despite 11 -kill 
performances by Claire Gilmartin 
and Annie Bloxson, Tech went 
home with a three game to one 

La. Tech won the first two games, 
15-8 and 15-11. But the Lady 
Demons were still full of fight, 
taking the third game 15-9 before 
dropping the final game 15-10 to 
end the match. 

For the Lady Demons, Sandy 
Sherrell had 30 assists and Kelly 
Fontenot had three of the team's 
nine service aces. The team also put 
up seven and one half blocks in the 
losing effort. 

Friday night was a lot better for 
the Lady Demons as they coasted 
over Alcorn St. 15-3, 15-2 and 15- 

Claire Gilmartin and Kelly Fon- 
tenot each had fivekills whileSonja 
Olsen racked up seven of the team ' s 
16 service aces against the floun- 
dering ladies of Alcorn State. 

Coach Rickey McAlister 
said,"We really appreciate the fans 
backing us at home. We also appre- 
ciate the sororities sponsoring our 
home games." 

Coach McAlister led his Lady 
Demons against Southeastern Sept. 
18. This week the squad will travel 
to Grambling Wednesday to face 
Mississippi Valley State and Gram- 
bling and then to Baton Rouge next 
Monday to face Southern. Last 
year posted two victories against 
both Southeastern and Grambling 
while dropping a pair to Southern. 

Being a transfer student, I have 
seen the important role Student 
Government plays in university life. 
Over the past two years the Student 
Government has made drastic im- 
provements to regain its respect 
with the students. After noticing 
these positive changes within the 
organization, with your help, I 
would like to be a part of the future 
of SGA at Northwestern. Sincerely, 
Clay Robinson.

The number 94 on the North- 
western State Football team is 
beginning to bring fear into eyes of 
each opposing tailback that steps 
onto the playing field with the 
Demons. Behind that number is a 
runningback-annihilating machine, 
Mister Andre Carron. The 5-11 
inch, 208 lb. linebacker is making 
his mark as a possible All- America 

After this past weekend's vic- 
tory over the East Texas State Lions, 
Andre led the team with a total of 
37 tackles after 3 games. Andre is 
a member of the tremendous line- 
backing corp consisting of Ran- 
dolph Hayes, Tracy Palmer, Greg 
Necaise, and Randy Bullock. 

The sophomore from Opelou- 
sas, Louisiana is quickly becoming 
a dominant factor in the defensive 
scheme after spending his fresh- 
man season backing up NSU's 1988 
leading tackier Leonard Parker. 
After having 39 tackles his fresh- 
man year and only three left to 
surpass that total this season I be- 
lieve it's safe to say he has filled in 
quite nicely. A word that probably 
no opponent thought possible in 
speaking of number 94. 

After being a student at North- 
western State University for the past 
two years. I have had many experi- 
ences that have provided me with 
knowledge that I would like to put to 
use. Being a Senator-at-Large for 
the Student Government Associa- 
tion would allow me to put these 
experiences to use to help to im- 
prove Northwestern. NSU is grow- 
ing and changing rapidly. I would 
like to be a voice that would speak 
for the students. So for "New Ideas" 
and "Belter Leadership" vote for 
Melissa Womack.

The first characteristic I look for 
in a candidate is, "Do they have 
pride in our university ? " Secondly, 
"Can they and will they perform to 
the best of their ability?" These two 
elements produce someone who is 
capable of serving the student body 
as a whole, and someone who will 
strive to make sure Northwestern is 
#1 . Hello, I am Kim Dowden and I 
am seeking the position of Senator- 
at-Large. I would like to have the 
chance to push NSU to the top by 
representing you and your ideas for 
the Student Government Associa- 

I have seen the progress our 
Student Government has made, 
within the last year, and I would like 
to be a part of it's conlin ued growth. 
I believe that I can contribute to our 
Government, and I want to get in-

candidate. Thank you, Steve

When a person stands in stature 
at 5-8 and is a red-shirt freshman on 
a collegiate football team , they are 
mostly satisfied in standing on the 
sidelines, chatting with other play- 
ers about some of the great plays, 
and just waiting around till the coach 
thinks he is ready. Well, the time 
for this young man is now as he sees 
action as the backup to Demon 
quarterback, Scott Stoker. When 
Brad Brown,young #5, takes the 
field he is ready for action. 

Brown seeing only very limited 
action in his first two college games 
got a chance to show his blistering 
speed and quickness before the 
11,400 faithful attending North- 
western State's home opener. 
Brown led the team in rushing from 
his backup quarterback role with 
76 yards on four carries, including 
an amazing 3 1 yard ripping touch- 
down run down the gut of a Lion 
defensive unit. 

Brad Brown still has three more 
years in a Demon jersey if all things 
go well. Those sure could turn into 
three years of excitement for the 
fans in Demonland.

jobs to the area, will receive 

The remaining $1,650,000 will 
go to the Natchitoches Parish Po-

revamp roads and bridges only. 

Professional engineers, using guide- 
lines established by the Louisiana 
Department of Transportation and 
Development, will assist the Police 
Jury in determining which roads 
will be worked on. 

Natchitoches Parish residents 
will be voting on a new sheriff in the 
upcoming election. Among the 
candidates are Sheriff Boyd Durr, 
David Byone, Jim Reichel and

On the Oct. 7 ballot, every Lou-

According to Debbie Waskom, 
the Natchitoches Parish Registrar 
of Voters, the deadline for register- 
ing to vote in this election is past but 
it is not too late to register for the 
runoff election on Saturday, Nov. 
18. To register to vote in Natchito- 
ches, residents must go to the 
registrar's office and present proof 
of address and age. Voter registra- 
tion is a very simple and quick 
procedure, said Waskom. 

Some students whose permanent 
address is outside of Natchitoches 
Parish may feel it is unnecessary to 

register to vote in this parish. These 
students must keep in mind that the 
proposed tax increase would be used 
to improve roads and bridges that 
they will be driving over for up to 
the next four years. 

Students who register to vote in 
Natchitoches Parish can easily 
change their registration to the per- 
manent home address, according to 
Waskom. "People can simply have 
their registration in Natchitoches 
parish canceled at their hometown 
registrar's office and reregister to 
vote there," she said. Therefore, 

students are urged to go out and 
register to vote and exercise this 
important right in their "home away

The Student Activities Board 
kicked off Northwestem's first tail- 
gate party of the season on Septem- 
ber 16. The party, which was head- 
lined by the band Self-Employed, 
was held in the Prather Coliseum 
parking lot. 

Self Employed, formerly Exit 
of Shreveport, kept the students 
rocking with popular songs from 
the past and present The four-man 
band played from 3 p.m. until 6 
p.m. "The band was really good," 
said Tammie Nolen, a Scholars' 
College junior. 

Demon fans brought out their 
ice chests and barbecue pits and 
simply tailgated the afternoon away . 
"The party has a very relaxing at- 
mosphere. It's fun just hanging out 
and not worrying about anything 
else," said Brooke Williams. 

Phillip Maggio was attending 
his first tailgate party. "It's a great 
time," he said. "Everyone is get- 
ting full and rocking and rolling 
preparing for the big game tonight" 

"This party was an improve- 
ment from when I was here," com- 
mented Darcy LeBlanc, an NSU 

According to Carl Henry, di* 
tor of student activities, the pan 
are finally catching on and s tude 
are beginning to come out and < 
joy themselves. "It looks like 
working. Tailgate parties are jhrjie 7£ 

another successful SAB project.}-- 

like to encourage more to co 
enjoy. It is really a good time," 

"The party was great If ] 
weren't there, you missed it," i 
Lisa Ward, SAB Special Ev 
Chairman. The band Stormy :

ance, the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Soil 
Conservation Service, the Louisi- 
ana Department of Environmental

A hospitality room for the re-

"Of the four goals that were 
developed for Career Fair last, 
spring, the most important goal lias 
to do with enhancing NSU's image 

with job recruiters," said Francis 
Conine, director of career planning 

and placement. "We want the job 
recruiters representing a very large 
and varied list of professional op- 
portunities to have personal contact 
with our very best students. We also 
want these recruiters to become 
familiar with established programs, 
like microbiology, and such new 
and innovative programs as the 
Louisiana Scholars' College." 

According to Conine, it is im- 
portant that the job recruiters know 
how successful Northwestern 
graduates have been. "Northwest- 
em can be proud of its long list of 
graduates who are presently occu- 
pying positions of leadership in 
public and private life," she said. 

western State University's annual

and recognize parents and relatives 
of the university's students is sched- 
uled for Saturday, Sept. 23, in con- 
junction with the NSU-McNeese 
State University football game in 
Turpin Stadium. 

Activities are planned through- 
out the day for Northwestern stu- 
dents and family members. Parents 
and relatives of NSU students will 
receive free tickets for the family 
day meal at 5:30 p.m. at Iberville 
Dining Hall and for the Southland 
Conference football game at 7 p.m. 

"Northwestern students are 
proud of their university home, and 
they enjoy sharing the excitement 
and enthusiasm of campus life with 
their parents and other family 
members on Family Day," said Dr. 
Robert A. Alost NSU president. 
"Family Day also allows us at 

Northwestern to honor and recog- 
nize parents for their important role 
in the success of the university. 
They have entrusted us with their 
most cherished treasures-their sons 
and daughters -and Family Day helps 
us express appreciation for that trust 
and confidence." 

This fall's Family Day obser- 
vance is a special event, because it 
was announced last weekend that 
NSU's fall semester enrollment of 
6,983 is the largest in the school's 
105-year history. 

Registration for Family Day will 
be conducted from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Forced seating at game angers Greeks 

Staff Writer 

Much confusion during the North- 
western State-McNeese State foot- 
ball game Saturday has caused many 
Northwestern' s students to become 
upset with seating arrangements at 
Turpin Stadium. 

According to Skeeter Henry, di- 
rector of student activities, many fans 
were complaining about not being 
able to see the game because some 
fraternities were standing and cheer- 
ing. Henry and Fred Fulton, director 
of student Mife, were forced to ask 

three fraternities to sit do wn and watch 
the game. 

Henry said the fans had paid to 
get into the game wanted to see the 
game. He added that the fans wanted 
to cheer. "I was damned if I did, and 
damned if I didn't," Henry said in 
regards to asking the students to sit. 
Henry said he was glad to see the 
enthusiasm of the students but other 
fans came to see the game but could 
not see because of the cheering fans 
in the Greek section. 

Fulton said that the students had 
no right to block the views of other 

paying fans. He added that the Uni- 
versity Police had been instructed to 
stop any member of any fraternity 
from obstructing the views of other 

Fulton, as well as Henry, stated 
that this was a reoccurring problem, 
but this week the problem arose with 
greaterconfusion because of the large 
number of non-NSU students in the 
crowd. A number of McNeese frater- 
nity members joined their fellow 
Northwestern chapters to view the 
game. Fulton said that there was too 
many people in these sections be- 

cause of the large delegations from 
both schools. 

Fulton added that the three frater- 
nities in question did try to cooperate 
with the University Police's request 
that they sit down. 

Both Henry and Fulton proposed 
to correct the problem by rearranging 
the seating in the student section. 
Henry said that the fraternities could 
move higher up in the stands Fulton 
added that the Greek section of the 
stands could possibly be rearranged 
by moving the fraternities to the south 
side of the East stands so they would 
not block other fans' views. 

New Vice-President airs views on position 

Staff Writer 

In arecord turnout election, David 
Wolfe was elected vice president of 
the Student Government Association 
for the 1989-90 term. 

Wolfe, 22, a public relations sen- 
ior from New Orleans, was sworn in 
Monday night and assumed his posi- 
tion. The general duties of the vice- 
president are to conduct the meetings 
and oversee the senate. 

Wolfe is looking forward to his 
newly elected position. "The sena- 
tors are like my children, who I have 

to properly guide. This concerns of- 
fice hours and the functioning of 
committees. Since I was a senator, I 
understand what it' s like to be a sena- 
tor. I know what they're going 
through," said Wolfe, referring to his 
role as vice president. 

The most pressing concern for 
Wolfe is the publishing of the student 
phone directory. He expressed con- 
cern over the back-up that the phone 
committee has encountered. Accord- 
ing to Wolfe, the reason for the delay 
of the phone book has been due to the 
incorrect phone lists that have been 

released by theregistrar'soffice. Due 
to this mishap, the computer center is 
unable to print the book. "Bill 
[Johnson] has done a good job, and 
the delay is of no fault of his," said 

Another concern of Wolfe's is the 
price of food items in the Student 
Union Cafeteria. He plans to review 
this matter in the future.

Student sees game seating 
as 'exercise in dictatorship' 

Dear Editor, 

This past weekend, the admini- 
stration again demonstrated its lack 
of respect for the fraternity system 
and in general, the student body it- 
self. With ineptitude rivaled only by 
the Roman Emperor Caligula, we 
lost another battle for student com- 
pliance. We, as a chartered organiza- 
tion of the campus, were forced to 
suffer under rash and typically inane 
decisions made by a select few (read 
two) members of our loyal and gra- 
cious administration (sarcasm in- 

If you hadn't figured out what I'm 
referring to, it's the McNeese foot- 
ball game. Rather than be allowed to 
stand and cheer our team to victory, 
the faculty members and their lack- 
eys (read University Police) de- 
manded that students sit down and 

behave. When the much surprised 
Greeks did not immediately comply, 
the University Police like so many 
members of the Third Reich, were 
called in to alleviate "The Situation." 

Why stand we here idle? We, as 
students, often pay over two thou- 
sand dollars a semester for the "privi- 
lege" of attending this school. And 
how are we treated after paying all 
this? I'll tell you how: like a bunch of 
eighth graders. Just because the 
people two rows up paid three dollars 
to get in (and by the way — they can 
move — we were here first) why 
should they get preference over the 
students that paid over two grand? 
Correct me if I ' m wrong, but isn ' t the 
school motto: "Where Students Come 
First?" This little exercise in dictator- 
ship has got to stop. 

I stopped and pondered for awhile, 
and after thinking for just a few sec- 

onds, I realized "Hey ! were not the 
only ones that stand during football 
games, what aboutLSU or even Texas 
A&M? They stand during the games, 
don't they?" At the risk of belittling 
the school, but aren't they just a little 
better and a little bigger than we are? 
It seems they also give a tad more 
respect to the students. Could we 
draw a parallel here? 

After so many incidents similar to 
this one, I ask, "Why are we so sur- 
prised that the administration does 
things like this?" At the risk of sound- 
ing pedantic, I'll tell you. The reason 
we are so outraged is because enough 
is enough! This overlooking of the 
students' rights has gone on much 
too long. It is time for the administra- 
tion to face facts, that we, as students, 
are adults and deserve to be treated as

Rules dampen student spirit Demon's Advocate 

Dear Editor, 

I sat with the KA's during the first 
half of the McNeese game Saturday 
night and I was shocked and disap- 
pointed at the actions and attitudes of 
Skeeter Henry and the police officers 
as they relate to the students and their 
enthusiasm during the game. Had I 
been a parent witnessing the harass- 
ment these young people were ex- 
posed to I would have removed my 
child from the stands and not allowed 
him to return to a game until a change 
is made in the attitude of Mr. Henry 
and the police officers. 

In the twenty years I have attended 
NSU football games the young men 
and women in the Greek section have 
stood, cheered , and been the center of 
spirit at the games. After last night 
I'm not so certain that will be the 
case. Due to the design of the sta- 
dium, the first three or four rows 
directly above the Greek section 
cannot see the game when the stu- 
dents in the Greek section stand and 

cheer. Evidently, some of the specta- 
tors in these rows complained to Mr. 
Henry about the students standing. 

Rather than taking the non-con- 
frontational approach to the situation 
and suggesting that the Domino's 
Pizza Free Ticket Holders move to 
some other available siting in the 
stadium (there was ample seating on 
the upper deck of the west side of the 
stadium) Mr. Henry chose to insist, 
with the help of the police officers, 
that the students in the Greek section 
sit down and remain seated. You can 
imagine how this was received by the 
students. I left at the half to avoid to 
further conversation with Skeeter and 
the officers. My understanding is 
that the KA's finally moved to the 
upper west side of the stadium to 
avoid further harassment 

Might I suggest that the first three 
or four rows behind the Greek sec- 
tion be blocked off so that the stu- 

dents in that section be allowed to 
stand up and cheer. I can imagine 
what would have happened should 
the students at an LSU or Texas A&M 
game be told to sit down and shut up. 
There would have been a riot 

The "Spirit of Northwestern" is 
making a comeback. After years of 
declining enrollment and student at- 
tendance at athletic events, there is a 
new spirit and attitude. It was disap- 
pointing to this alumnus to see that 
spirit stifled at last week's football 
game. I would ask that Mr. Henry 
and the University develop a policy 
that allows the "Spirit" in the Greek 
section continue to grow — rather than 
have to move to the other side of the 
stadium. The student should be al- 
lowed to enjoy the "Spirit of North-

Allen clarifies burning issue 

Dear Editor, 

At least two of those who read my 
comments in the September 12 issue 
of the Current Sauce regarding Presi- 
dent George Bush's proposed anti- 
flag burning amendment failed to 
grasp my point One was a fellow 
calling himself Royal A. Brown III, 
and the other was one Don "Slash" 

For their sakes, and for any others 
who did not understand, but were too 

wise to criticize what they did not 
comprehend, I will try to make my 
point more clearly. 

I quite agree that it is stupid and 
contradictory to burn a United States 
flag. The flag is a symbol of Ameri- 
can freedoms, just as a college de- 
gree, framed and hanging on the wall 
of a lawyer's office, is a symbol of 
the education of its possessor. 

But removing the rights which the 
flag represents, in this case, the right 

to free speech, renders the flag mean- 
ingless, just as giving the lawyer a 
lobotomy removes the education the 
degree represents, which makes the 
degree meaningless. 

Flag... continued to 
page 3 

I have been chastised. It seems 
that while I was bludgeoning the 
fashion-unconscious crowd, I had 
allowed myself to undergo a drastic 
transformation, donning a fashion 
atrocity too nightmarish to regale. A 
mere eight ounces of peroxide meta- 
morphosed me from a one-time bru- 
nette into the hideous victim of a bad 
bottle job. It was as if I was the star 
of some bad thriller: Dr. Jekyll and 
Mr. Hyde Meet Ogilvie, except that it 
was painfully obvious that I had not 
spent a fortune on my hair. 

It was decided though, that I would 
make the best of a hopeless situation. 
I would, during my week of bleached- 
ness, investigate the ins and outs of 
being blonde. What I discovered 
immediately was the attention I re- 
ceived, leaving me to consider both 
sides of the hair-prejudice issue. 

Someone once said that "blonds 
have more fun." It is apparent to me 
that this person was firstly, ignorant, 
and secondly, a brunette suffering 
from delusions of what Freud called 
hair envy. 

Not only is such a philosophy the 
most falsehood-laden scenario I could 
imagine, but in all actuality it is just 
the opposite that is correct. Blondes, 
indeed, have less fun and more ridi- 
cule, or at least that's what I encoun- 
tered, possibly because I looked so 
much like the Heat Miser from the 
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 
Christmas special; but then again, 
possibly not. 

As a blonde I was always being 
asked if my hair was natural. This is 
the most insultingpartofbeing blonde 
with the possible exception of people 
constantly mistaking you for Pia 
Zadora. I think all you fair-haired 
folks should retaliate. Ask people 
with nice smiles "Are you wearing 
dentures?", tell those with clear skin 
"My, that chemical peel worked 
wonders, didn't it?" and finally, 
question thin people, "When did you 
have your lipo-suction?" Though 
now I have sympathy for them, it 
really peeves me to see all the atten- 
tion paid to undeserving blondes. For 
centuries they have been immortal- 
ized in poetry, song, and even ballets 
and operas, namely Blonde Lake and 
La Blondemd. 

Just to prove a point, I looked up 
Stephen Foster's poem Jeannie with 
the Light Brown Hair. Tell me, why 
did her hair have to be light brown? 
He could have just as easily used 
dark brown, or just brown. What 
would have been wrong with "I dream 
of Jeannie with the large brown hair"? 
Closer analysis of this poem reveals 
blatant bias towards blondes: 

"I dream of Jeannie with the light 
brown hair /Borne like a vapor on the 
summer air /I see her tripping where 
the bright streams play /Happy as the 
daisies that dance on her way." 

I'll grant you that Jeannie #orced. 
be very attractive, but why does neei 
have to be so happy? Does this ifchasthis 
that universally blondes have If Sltuauc 
dispositions than brunettes? I, for 1 words 
wouldn ' t be too delighted if so 

Jonly at P 

had just watched me "trip" ur 5 " 18 to 
"stream." I still queried though "fuieirwhi 
must this poem beaboutablonF visedl 
I tried to reconsider with leni meras P ; 
that perhaps the poet was wir^m ' s 1

The ABC's of Wellness 

Part three in a series 

Everyone is irritable or indecisive 
at times. But some people are so 
difficult that they make others' lives 
and work a strain. Dealing with dif- 
ficult people is easier when you learn 
to recognize some common person- 
ality types. Then you can develop 
coping skills for dealing with each 
without trying to change them! 

There are seven behavior types 
with whom most people have 
difficulty. Bullies are hostile and 
angry, throwing tantrums to get their 
way. Gripers complain about things 
they don ' t like, but rarely try to change 
their situation. Silent types don't say 
much: you can beg, yell, or talk to 
them, but they don't say more than 
"yes" or "no." Very nice people 
seem to agree with you, but won' t do 
what they say they will. Just say no 
types respond to new ideas with 'That 
won't work." I know better types 
think they know everything. They're 
condescending and full of themselves. 
Stallers put things off until someone 

else takes over, or until the decision is 
made because of the delay. 

These behaviors are annoying and 
upsetting. They keep everyone but 
the difficult person off balance. This 
can be true even though they may not 
be trying to control others. Coping 
balances the power between people. 
It helps everyone get things done 
without stalling at the roadblocks 
difficult people set up. 

When someone practices difficult 
behaviors around you, try these tech- 

For bullies, stand up for yourself. 
Use phrases like "I believe" or "I 
feel." Don't try to fight them. In- 
stead, make your point firmly. 

Let gripers know you've heard 
their concern. Directly ask, "What is 
it you want?" 

For silent types, ask questions that 
must be answered by more than "yes" 
or "no." If you get no response, let 
the silent type know your plans. 

Very nice people have a strong 

need to be liked; show them that you 
do. Then dig to find out what' s really 

Don ' t argue with just say no types. 
Instead, suggest what won't work 
before they do. 

For I know better types, have all 
the facts before you meet. Raise 

possible problems, and be ready to 
follow through. 

Listen to stallers; find out what 
the real reason for the delay is. Help 
them, and ask them for help. 

You can't always avoid difficult 
people. Learning to cope with them 
is worth the effort. You'll get more 
done and be less frustrated if you do. 

When it comes to personal rela- 
tionships, ultimatums rarely work. 
Instead, it helps to know how to give 
and take-to negotiate. Learning to 
effectively confront, cooperate, and 
understand are the most effective 
skills we have for successful negotia- 

In order to resolve differences or 

negotiate, you must be willing to face 
the other person. You don't need to 
be angry or accusing. Butyou should 
be direct. Positive communicating 
includes honestly saying ho you feel 
and what you want. 

"Cooperate" means "work to- 
gether." To begin, suggest that each 
person state the problem or situation 
from his or her point of view. Don't 
defend your position, but listen. Ask 
questions if you don 't understand the 
other person's feelings. Next, each 
person can try to come up with a few 
ideas for solving the conflict. If 
possible, suggest solutions that are 
"win/win." Assume you share a com- 
mon interest: Thedesireforafriendly 

To negotiate wisely, put yourself 
in the other person's shoes. What 
would satisfy him? What does he 
want? Avoid criticizing; when people 
feel inferior, they get angry. When 
they're angry, you're less likely to 
get what you want.

1 am not equal:' campus racism angers student 

a Editor, 

College is a continual process of 
jwth and personal development, 
i much of that learning has noth- 
j to do with the classes that we 
[e> I have come to learn a very 
inful lesson upon my return to 
)rthwestem State University, and I 
•1 that it is one that I must share. 
I am a member of the Louisiana 
fiolars' College and I am content 
»re, but I am also proud to be a part 
this campus as a whole. However, 
I returned here to begin my 
ior year, things were not the same 
me. No, it was not the fact that I 
;n't prepared to begin classes 
I wish that it was just that, 
onetimes we wear blinders in this 
e and we see only what we want to 
e . I suppose that I have been guilty 
that for the past two years. 
This past summer, my best friend 
d I went away to Manchester, New 
jmpshire, to work and spend some 
ne with my relatives. During our 

stay, we encountered some of the 
warmest and friendliest people in the 
world, and what made them so spe- 
cial is they saw us for who we really 
were. My point is that my friend and 
I went to New England expecting to 
find some type of segregation, be- 
cause that was the way our world 
operated. As a result, the people 
there thought that we were the strange 
ones. After spending two and a half 
months there, the both of us flew 
home with the ridiculous notion that 
all people were equal, for the most 
part. I returned to Natchitoches 
expecting to operate and function just 
as if I was like everyone else. 

I was wrong. Here at Northwest- 
ern, I am nor like everyone else. Some 
may consider me to be a fine student. 
Some may consider me to be a fine 
friend. I have tried to be these things 
and I have also tried to carry myself 
in a manner which was exemplary. 
Despite all of this, I am still a kind, 
considerate, well-groomed black 

student here at NSU. Most of you 
have no idea what that means. For 
nineteen years, I didn't know what 
that meant. 

It means that you can ' t really ever 
be viewed as totally equal in every 
sense of the word. My parents had 
always told me that when I was grow : 
ingup.butldidn'treally listen. They 
said it was okay to befriend them, but 
in the end whites would stick with 
their own kind. "This is the eighties," 
I would say. "All of that stuff is 
ancient history." It isn't 

For years, my friends would tell 
me, "You aren't really black. You 
don't act like other black people." 
Perhaps someone could write their 
own letter to the Current Sauce and 
tell me how black people are sup- 
posed to act. How are blacks sup- 
posed to talk? For some reason, I 
used to take that as some sort of 
compliment. It is, in reality, proba- 
bly the highest insult that anyone 
could ever pay me. 

I want every white person on this 
campus to think back and try to 
remember the last time you were told 
by a black person that you weren't 
good enough. How many times have 
you heard that their parents wouldn't 
understand them being with you? 
Have you ever been made to feel as if 
you weren't equal because of your 
color? I wish that I had a dollar for 
every time that it happened to me, or 
other blacks in general. Sometimes I 
think about why none of the friends 
that I have in Phi Mu have ever asked 
me to go to Grub or Crush. I remem- 
ber being in New Hampshire and 
having them just stare at me when I 
told them that fraternities and sorori- 
ties were not integrated on my cam- 
pus. I am not equal. By God, what 
would the sisters of Tri-Sigma say if 
one of their members dated a black 
man? How many mouths would drop 
if a Kappa Alpha brought a black 
woman to the Old South celebration? 

I wouldn ' t dare s uggest that prej u- 

dice is one-sided. Bringing a white 
woman to an Omega Psi Phi dance 
would be equally as uncomfortable. I 
was once told by a friend in Kappa 
Alpha Psi that I might fit their image 
if I didn't hang around with so many 
white women. It shouldn't have to be 
about all that. No one should make 
me feel bad about who I am and how 
I live my life. And yet is happens, 
almost every day. 

We all feel the pressure, and we all 
have our own set of excuses. The fact 
that my parents or your parents do not 
understand is beside the point They 
aren't here beside us every day. As 
we progress further and further into 
adulthood, we have to be our own 
people and live our own lives. 
However, the fact remains that most 
whites on this campus and thousands 
of other ones across the country see 
blacks as second-class citizens. We 
are not the same, are we? 

I can be a lot of things, and if I 
choose to, I can change myself from 

one extreme to the other. I will al- 
ways be black, though, and there is 
nothing wrong with that Nothing. I 
am very proud of it, but with each 
passing day, I am subtly made to be 
ashamed of it because I don ' t act like 
"other blacks"; because I am differ- 
ent from other blacks. 

A great many people will be upset 
by this testimonial for at least a day, 
maybe even for a week, but then it 
will be forgotten. I don't intend to let 
it be forgotten. We all need to wake 
up and look at what we are doing. We 
are the future and what kind of future 
are we building? Some people will 
say that I am rocking the boat but I 
am just trying to adjust the environ- 
ment that I have to live in for the next 
two years, and for the rest of my life. 
I used to say, "What can I do about 
this? I guess I just have to live with 
it" I don't and I believe that anyone 
of us can make a difference. Wake up 
everybody, please.

There seems to be plenty of other

Any effort to take the idea of sit-

to stand? Say for example, one

an interception. And what about

Freshman Senator: 

vote for one 

Within the month that I've been a 
student here at Northwestern I've seen 
many things, some good, some bad. 
Everyone, of course, will try tochange 
the bad things, but who will try to 
make the good better? I will strive to 
solve problems here on campus, but I 
will also do my best to work at mak- 
ing the best better. I'd appreciate the 
time and effort to vote for me, Chad 

Philip Wolfe 

My reasons for running for Fresh- 
man Senator are as simple as they are 
common. I feel there are many les- 
sons to be learned outside of the col- 
lege classrooms, and that the real 
reasons for college are not all in the 
textbooks. I feel I have something to 
offer the University and SGA. 
Throughout my high school days, I 
have been involved in student gov- 
ernment, in some form or the other, 
and my experiences have led me to 
minor in Political Science while 
majoring in Editorial Journalism. 
Vote Philip Wolfe.

Itza Pizza jazzes up campus life with food and fu 

Staff Writer 

Itza delicious! Itza popular! Itza 
Pizza! Most everyone around North- 
western is aware of the campus pizza 
parlor known as Itza Pizza, located 
downstairs in the Student Union. 

Itza Pizza has been a part of North- 
western since November 1987, when 
it was incorporated as a part of the 
"new" food program under ARA 
Dining Services. Hank Ewing, now 

student manager of Itza Pizza, has 
been working there from the begin- 
ning. "It's a great idea. We're here 
for the students to have a place to 
hang out and be with their friends. 
Why go across town when you've 
got it right here?" said Ewing. 

SAB sponsors a movie night every 
Tuesday at 8 p.m. This weekly event 
has become more popular over the 
past year and attracts a good crowd 
for Itza Pizza. "The movies are great," 

said Ewing. "SAB does a good job in 
movie selection. It helps us do busi- 
ness and gives the students two serv- 
ices at one time." 

Plans are being made to expand 
the success of Itza Pizza. One in- 
volves a "Greek Hour" every Sunday 
night following all the weekly frater- 
nity and sorority meetings. During 
Greek Hour, the NSU Jazz Band will 
perform live in Itza Pizza and food 
and drink specials will be offered. 

Coming in October is a lunch 
buffet on Tuesdays and Thursdays 
from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Al- 
ready in effect are the daily sandwich 
deals, which bring students into Itza 
Pizza to eat, since sandwiches will 
not be delivered. Itza Pizza will also 
be holding a drawing for a free 10- 

"ARA's new food service direc- 
tor, James Taylor, wants Itza Pizza to 

be a student-run service. He feels 
that in this way new, unique ideas and 
promotions will be implemented." 
said Ewing. "We want it to be for the 
students, run by the students." 

Working along with Ewing are an 
assistant manager, Tony Johnnie, and 
six crew members. 'The crew's great. 
I love them. The fun cancels out the 
pressure of the job. And, I think the 
pizza has improved a lot in the past 

year," said A J. Holden, an Itza 

With movies, great pizza, 
games, food specials, pool 
giveaways, new promotion 
ideas, Itza Pizza is becoming

Student Government Association to 
sponsor Homecoming week. This 
year's theme is "Come Home To The

pageant in which men dress as 
women, is scheduled for Tuesday 
night at 7:00 p.m. in the Student Un- 
ion Ballroom. A campus-wide talent 
show will follow. Cash prizes will be 


Wednesday is "Purple and White 
Day." Show your Northwestern spirit 
by wearing our school colors. 

Presentation of the Homecoming 
Court will be Thursday at 11:00 in 
front of the Student Union. 

The Homecoming Parade begins 
Friday at 5:30 p.m. and starts on

Coliseum, where the Homecoming 

Court will be presented. Floats spon- 
sored by campus organizations will 
be judged and prizes awarded. 

Saturday's tailgate party will fea- 
ture "Snazz" playing from 1 1:00a.m. 
until 1:00 p.m. in the Prather Coli- 
seum parking lot. At 2:00 p.m. the 
Demons will face the University of 
North lexas Eagles. 

Homecoming tee-shirts cost $5.00 
and will be on sale next week in the 
Student Union. 


Family Day new Northwestern tradition 

Staff Writer 

Traditions play an important role 
at Northwestern. The Christmas 
Festival, Greek Week.State Fair game 
and Homecoming are just a few of 
the traditions that have survived over 
the years. Family Day, once the "new 
kid on the block," has now become 
one of these important traditions at 

"Family Day allows parents to 
come back and visit Northwestern," 
said Carl Henry, director of student 
activities and organizations. 

Family Day 1989 was held on 
Sept. 23 and at parents had the oppor- 
tunity to spend a fun-filled day at 
NSU. A scramble golf tournament, 
sailing, canoeing and a tailgate party 
were just a few of the activities on the 
agenda. Parents were also allowed to 

get a "taste"of Northwestern, as they 
were treated to a free meal at Iberville 
Dining Hall. 

However, Family Day was not 
designed for all "fun and games." 
Meetings with department heads were 
held from 10 a.m. until noon on Sat- 
urday and a reception at President 
Alost' s home was held during the 

The highlight of the day was the 
Northwestern-McNeese football 
game in Turpin stadium. Families 
received free tickets to he game, and 
they were able to help cheer the 
Demons to victory. 

"Our main goal was to invite the 
parents and welcome them to North- 
western and make their stay as enjoy- 
able as possible," Henry said.

Activities program gets into full swing 
this week as the Intramural Flag 
Football season gets underway with a 
record 35 teams registered to partici- 
pate. With an increase of 30 percent 
from last year, these teams represent 
four leagues as play begins with over 
100 games on four fields over the 
next three weeks. 

Leisure Activities held its first 
preseason flag football tournament 
last week with 21 teams participat- 
ing. Favorites going into the tourna- 
ment were the Kappa Sigs and Alpha 
Phi Alpha in the red pool, Kappa 
Alpha and Bushwackers in the or- 
ange pool, and Slaughter House Gang 
and Ice Cold in the purple pool. After 

an afternoon of play, Kappa Alpha, 
Alpha Phi Alpha, Whatever and the 
Falcons advanced to a single elimi- 
nation tournament on Saturday. 

In the women's division, Tappa 
Kegga Lite and the Hopperettes 
appeared to be the favorites. Tri- 
Sigma, Tappa Kegga Lite and the 
Hopperettes won close ball games. 

In Saturday's finals. What- 
ever faced the men from Alpha Phi 
Alpha fraternity in the first game and 
Kappa Alpha played the Falcons in 
the second game. Whatever edged 
out Alpha Phi Alpha 6-0 and Kappa 
Alpha scored quickly to win a 20-6 
contest over the Falcons. 

In the championship game against 
Whatever, KA scored first and con- 

verted the extra point for a 7-0 lead. 
Both teams sustained drives in each 
other's areas only to have downs or 
interceptions turn them away. With 
less than two minutes remaining in 
the game, Whatever mounted their 
final drive and scored with little time 
left on the clock. Whatever elected to 
go for a one-point conversion to tie 
the game. Whatever, however, was 
unable to convert and the final score 
was 7-6 as KA headed into regular

Staff Writer 

Kappa Sigma is planning an im- 
portant blood drive for the middle of 
ve Yo^october. This will be a replacement 


drive for member David Clark, who 
was injured in a swimming accident 
last June. 
Clark is hospitalized in ICU at 

Schumpert Medical Center in Shre- 
veport. "He could really use 
everyone's support," commented Dan 
Dupre, the blood drive' s coordinator. 

Kappa Sigma sponsored an all- 
Greek drive in Fall '89, a general 
drive the following semester, and one 
for Clark was held this past July. 

"Fifty-five units were donated dur- 
ing the last drive," said Dupre. "We 
feel we have been very successful." 

Kappa Sigma would like to en- 
courage everyone to roll up their 
sleeves and give blood next month. 
Check Current Sauce for the date of 
the drive.

Demons salvage first conference win, 18- 17 


Staff Writer 

The Northwestern State Demons 
showed some early-leaving fans the 
error of their ways Saturday with a 
18-17 last minute victory over 
McNeese to even their record at 2-2 
and win their sixth straight confer- 
ence opener. 

The Demon attack was led by the 
combined effort of quarterback S cott 
Stoker, flanker Al Edwards and kicker 
Chris Hamler. 

"That's our Smurf offense," said 
Demon coach Sam Goodwin. "Our 
guys are so small that defensive play- 
ers have trouble getting do wn to tackle 

Stoker completed 17 of 28 passes 
for 169 yards and captained the last 
Demon scoring drive of eight plays, 
71 yards and 2: 1 1 to win the game. 

Hamler was named the Southland 
Conference "Special Teams Player 
of the Week" after kicking the win- 
ning field goal with no time left, and 
Edwards compiled 138 all-purpose 
yards including six receptions for 1 06 
yards and three rushes for 24 yards 
and two touchdowns. 

Leading the defensive squad were 
Tracy Palmer with 15 tackles and 
Andre Carron and Greg Necaise with 
nine apiece, and Randy Hilliard with 
an interception. Palmer was named 
conference "Defensive Player of the 
Week" for his performance. 

For the second straight week, the 
Demons opened the game with a 
scoring drive. The 14-play, 80-yard 
campaign was capped by a surprise 
5-yard run by Al Edwards lined up at 
his original position of tailback. 

McNeese retaliated with 10 first 
half points on a 44-yard field goal by 
Jason Kemp and a 3-yard run by star 
tailback Tony Citizen. Citizen col- 
lected 134 of the Cowboys' 195rush- 
ing yards. 

Late in the second quarter, the 
Cowboy's blocked a Mark Contreras 
punt to gain possession on the North- 
western 16-yard line. But they were 
unable to take advantage of the situ- 
ation, losing the ball on downs when 
Randy Hilliard and Adrian Howard 
dropped Tony Citizen for a twelve- 
yard loss. 

"A big turnaround was that 
blocked punt," said Coach Goodwin. 
"We stopped them without points in 
four-down territory. That blocked 
punt could have been devastating but 
our defense saved us." 

The second half opened with 
Northwestern 's J J. Eldridge forcing 
a fumble on the kickoff and starting 
on the McNeese 17-yard line. They 
were unable to capitalize, however, 
as two plays later Scott Stoker 
fumbled the ball on the three-yard 

The Cowboys immediately came 
back with a touchdown at the end of 
the 97-yard drive. The Scott Dieter- 
ich to Carlos McGee scoring strike 
made the score 17-7 with 10:181eftin 
the third quarter. 

NSU came back two possessions 
later with a touchdown on an Al 
Edwards 20- yard run off the reverse. 
This was followed by Scott Stoker's 
extra point run on the fake kick to 
make the score 17-15. 

"I wasn ' t sure if the reverse would 
work in that situation," said Good- 
win, "and sure enough, we left one of 
their tackles unblocked which forced 
Al to cut up the middle. Once he got 
going north and south, he was a blur." 

"I just wanted to get the ball into 
Al's hands on that play and I wasn't 
sure what pass coverage McNeese 
would use," he said. 

With 2: 1 1 left, the Demons got the 
ball on their own 20 and drove 72 
yards down the field withouta huddle 
to set up Chris Hamler' s do or die 25- 
yard field goal as the final gun 
sounded. Helping the drive were 
three receptions by Al Edwards for 
46 total yards and two big McNeese 

"It keeps us up in front of the 
conference. It keeps our win streaks 
going at home (nine straight) and in 
the conference (eight straight)," 
Goodwin said of the win. "But most 
of all it gives us a lot of confidence 
that regardless of the situation, we 
can overcome adversity. We've got 
guys who will come through and get 
the job done." 

This is the first time Northwestern 
has come from behind this season, 
losing their first two games by ten 
point margins. 

"I think this demonstrates we've 
made progress," said Goodwin. "I do 
feel very fortunate to win. We had a 

punt blocked, gave up almost 200 
yards rushing and didn't control the 
clock except for the first and last 
drives of the game. We had two 
critical turnovers on their half of the 

"With all that going against us, we 
came out with a win and I feel pretty 
fortunate," he said. 

This week, the Demons will be 
tying to keep their conference streak 
alive when they travel to Southwest 
Texas State. The Bobcats are 2-1 
coming off an impressive 26-7 domi- 
nation of the previously 1 lth-ranked 
Northeast Indians. 

The Bobcats are first in the SLC in 
scoring defense and second in rush- 
ing. They are led by running back 
Reggie Rivers, who is averaging 99 
rushing yards per game. Last game 
freshman quarterback Kevin Smith 
won the SLC "Offensive Player of 
the Week" honors with 92 yards rush- 
ing and 94 passing. 

"You've got to be wary of a hun- 
gry team that's had early success," 
said Goodwin. 'They definitely have 
our total respect They certainly have 
made a big first step toward challeng- 
ing for the conference title."

Staff Writer 

The road to success is still a rocky 
one for the Lady Demon volleyball 
team as they went 2-2 in this week's 
competition to extend their record to 

Last Monday night in Hammond, 
the Lady Demons lost a heartbreak- 
ing five game match to Southeastern 
6-15, 15-13, 15-7, 12-15, and 13-15. 
The NSU attack was led by Annie 
Bloxson and Claire Gilmartin with 
14 kills apiece. 

Things got worse before they got 
better, as the next day the team's 
leading hitter, sophomore Claire 
Gilmartin, was diagnosed with mono- 

nucleosis. She is expected to miss 
two weeks, but will return before the 
beginning of the conference sched- 

Wednesday night the Lady De- 
mons bounced back onto the right 
track with victories over Mississippi 
Valley and Grambling. 

In the first match, Northwestern 
destroyed Mississippi Valley in three 
straight games, 15-1, 15-1, and 15-2. 
Senior Annie Bloxson sparked the 
Lady Demons with eight kills. 

The second match featured NSU 
defeating Grambling 15-10,6-15,15- 
12,15-5. Tops for the Lady Demons 
were Sonja Olsen with 10 kills and 
Annie Bloxson with eight. In a tough

The Northwestern win streak had 
to come to an end, as the Lady Demons 
lost to Southern (17-1) last night. 
The final count was 16-14,6-15, 11- 
15,and 12-15. Annie Bloxson led the 
losing effort with 15killsand 19digs. 
Helping out were Renita Ellis with 
14 kills and 17 digs and Sandi Sher- 
rell with 35 assists. 

The Lady Demons will continue 
on the road with a trip to Ruston 
Thursday, Sept. 28 to face Louisiana 
Tech. They will be hoping to avenge 
a three game loss to the Lady Bull- 
dogs two weeks ago.

Sports Editor 

Many times we here the old say- 
ing, "I was able to watch so-in-so 
mature into a great athlete." When 
hear this you expect a person to be 
considerably older than the athlete 
and also being a diehard fan of the 
athlete's school. Well I'm not con- 
siderably older than Tracy Palmer, in 
fact I'm a year younger, but I was 
able to watch him in high school. 

Tracy Palmer attended Many 
High(same school as myself). Tracy 
had a great high school career as a 
tailback for the Tigers, gaining more 
than 2,000 yards and 22 touchdowns 
his last two seasons. Tracy also won 
10 letters during his high school ten- 
ure in basketball, track, and football. 

Tracy, number 93 on the field, is 
the 21 year old son of Douglas and 
Rosemary Palmer. 

Palmer began his collegiate ca- 
reer as a running back. In 1986, he 
was the only true freshman to letter 
and score two touchdowns. 

He started the 1987 season as a 
part time starter at fullback. He ran 
for 124 yards on 32 carries and also 
tossed a 10 yard pass to quarterback 
Rusty Slack vs. North Texas. 

In 1988 he was moved to his cur- 
rent position as linebacker. Palmer 
made 50 stops in his last eight games. 

This season he is a high all-con- 
ference candidate after having a 
strong spring practice. After four 
games this season, Tracy has made a 
total of 5 1 tackles and is second only 
to fellow linebacker Andre Canon. 

This past week he earned his keep 
by being in on 15 tackles. Tracy 
effort was good enough to earn him 
the title of Defensive Player of the 
Week in the Southland Conference. 

In conclusion, I can say that Tracy 
has molded himself into a great ath- 
lete and a member of the elite in the 
defensive unit of the Northwestern 
State University Demons.

Just because someone doesn 't start 
doesn't mean that they can't play. 
There are good players on the bench 
for just that reason, and Ladine Tho- 
mas is proof of that 

Even coming off the bench, she 
manages to play about half the time , 
keeping up with her freshman sea- 
son, during which she played in 27 of 
30 matches. 

"Ladine helps the team a lot off 
the bench," said coach Rickey Mc Al- 
ister of the Lady Demon setter. "She 
has good court awareness and knowl- 
edge of the game. She may start 
some, depending on what I need that 

Coach McAlister expressed his 
confidence in not only her setting, 
but in her defensive play as well. 
"She is doing well. She's a good 
competitor," he said. 

The sophomore from Fort Worth, 
Texas, showed confidence in the 
team's chances as the season pro- 

"We are better than we've been 
playing, but we're beginning to look 
better," she said. "We should play 
better with better competition." 

With a 4-3 record already, the 
Lady Demons' improvement can only 
mean good things. 

The Lady Demons and Ladine will 
travel to Ruston to face Louisiana 
Tech Thursday, Sept. 28, hoping to 
avenge their earlier loss by returning 
to the ways that brought them two 
victories over the Lady Bulldogs last

When you least expect it, expect 
it Northwestern State University 
comerback Randy Hilliard often stuns 
opponents and occasionally coach 
Sam Goodwin by coming up with the 
big play. 

"He's made several big plays for 
usthatyoudon'texpecthim to make," 
said Goodwin. 

Also known for speaking softly 
and having a big hit, the 5-10, 158, 
senior was a 1989 preseason All- 
American and All-Southland Con- 
ference first team selection by the 
NFL Draft Report. 

This season, Hilliard has been in 
on 20 tackles, two pass break-ups, 
and a 41 yard interception with the 
pass break-ups and the interception 
coming in last week's Demon win 
over East Texas State. 

Hilliard 's career has been a memo- 
rable one. In the past two years he 
was selected second-team All Lou- 
isiana twice, in 1987 and 88, and was 
second team All Southland Confer- 
ence in 1987 as well as honorable 
mention in 1988. 

His career defensive statistics 
speak for themselves. He has a total 
of 106 tackles, 32 pass break-ups, 
and seven pass interceptions includ- 
ing two that have been returned for 
touchdowns, one against Delta State 
in 1987 for 72 yards and one last 
season for 80 yards against North 
Player of the Week. 

Hilliard said the highlight of his 
career was playing a part in the 1988 
SLC championship. 

"It was a greatfeeling to know that 
all of our hard work paid off," said 

Hilliard's goals this season are to 
have eight interceptions, two touch- 
down returns, and to have the most 
pass break-ups in the conference. 

Former teammate Kevin Lewis 
has been an influence on Hilliard. 

"Kevin was a hard worker and 
was dedicated. He knew what to say 
to the younger players and was will- 
ing to help us become better," said 

But Randy's admiration doesn't 
end with Lewis. His parents Mr. and 
Mrs. Richard Hilliard, have had the 
biggest impact during his career. 

"They are a big inspiration to me. 
Every night before a game they call 
me and encourage me to do my best 
and if something does go wrong they -

want to play harder," said Hilliard. 

Hilliard said that his performance 
this season has been OK but he isn't 
at the level that he wants to be. 

"I've been working harder at prac- 
tice and working on specific areas to 
become better," said Hilliard. 

Hilliard has dedicated this season 
to close friend and teammate Kirt 
Straughter who drowned last April.

Ranger Challenge to test cadets' skil 

western State University's Ranger 
Challenge Team, sponsored by the 
U.S. Army Senior Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps at NSU, competed 
Friday and Saturday, September 22- 
23, in Lake Charles. 

The two-day challenge competi- 
tion was hosted by McNeese State 
University. Other institutions that 

competed were Southern University 
of Baton Rouge, Lamar University of 
Beaumont, Texas, Northeast Louisi- 
ana University of Monroe, and Prai- 
rie View A&M of Houston, Texas. 

Led by junior cadet John Means 
Jr. of Leesville, the 18-memberNSU 
Ranger Challenge Team is an elite 
group of ROTC cadets whose mem- 
bers are selected on the basis of 

physical fitness and overall academic 

This weekend, the NSU Ranger 
Challenge Team competed in six 
events. They were the Army physi- 
cal readiness test, consisting of push- 
ups, sit-ups and a two-mile run; rifle 
marksmanship, shooting from the 
prone position; grenade assault 
course, an obstacle course in which 

the cadets threw grenades at various 
targets; orienteering, using a map and 
compass to navigate to as few as 8 or 
as many as 15 points on the course; a 
10-kilometer or 6.2-mile march, with 
full backpack and weapon; and one- 
rope bridging, in which the cadets 
constructed a one-rope bridge over 
an obstacle. 

The Ranger Challenge Competi- 

tion, considered the varsity sport for 
the ROTC, will culminate with the 
national meet in November at Camp 
Robinson, Ark.

Satellite uplinks with C-Span network 

Staff Writer 

When Northwestern students 
came back to the campus this fall, 
they noticed the addition to the cam- 
pus, a huge satellite receiver located 
beside Kyser Hall. However, most 
students were left wondering just what 
Northwestern planned to do with that 
huge satellite receiver. 

On Sept. 25, the satellite system 

was put to use for the first time. In 
cooperation with the Close-Up Foun- 
dation, a non-profit organization 
dedicated to informing high school 
students on the workings of govern- 
ment, the Louisiana School broad- 
casted live C-Span from a North- 
western auditorium. C-Span is a live 
cable network that, along with politi- 
cal and government issues, gives 
hours to the topic of education. 
The broadcast was set up in a talk- 

show format. It featured a panel of 
nine Louisiana School students and 
Rep. Jimmy Long, the Head of the 
Committee on Education , talking with 
a panel in Washington, D.C. The 
broadcast lasted approximately one 
hour long. 

The topic of the broadcast was the 
problem of the tremendous high 
school drop-out rate. According to 
Ron McBride of Louisiana School, 

about 80 percent of the show featured 
the Louisiana School panel. 

"This is not the first time Louisi- 
ana School has been asked to do such 
a program and because of the quality 
of our students, we were asked in do 
itagain," said McBride. "In 1987, we 
did a broadcast on the topic agribusi- 
ness." The previous broadcast was 
done through a leased satellite uplink 
system that cost $1 1 ,500 for 50 min-

Over 1,000 
tickets for 
movie sold 

the Natchitoches Premiere of the 
movie Steel Magnolias are sold out. 
Approximately 1,400 tickets have 
been sold to the Nov. 10 premiere of 
the picture, which was filmed in 
Natchitoches last summer. 

Premiere co-chairman Tom 
Whitehead of Northwestern State 
University said, 'Ticket requests have 
been filled on a first-come, first- 
served basis for the past week, and 
the premiere is now soldout. Some 
ticket requests received this week are 
being returned without tickets, and 
orders are no longer being accepted." 

The Natchitoches Premiere is 
scheduled for the Parkway Cinema, 
and proceeds will go to the North- 
western Foundation for scholarships. 

There are four screens at the Park- 
way Cinema, which has a seating 
capacity of just over 700. Steel 
Magnolias will be shown of all four 
screens for the Natchitoches Pre- 
miere, and there will be showings at 
6:30 p.m . and 9:30 p.m . to accommo- 
date the 1,400 ticket holders. 

In addition, those attending the 
Natchitoches Premiere are invited to 
a "Natchitoches Goes Hollywood" 
party atPrather Coliseum on the NSU 
campus. The event will feature foods, 
beverages, decorations and entertain- 
ment with a California flair. 

Individuals who have tickets for 
the early showing will attend the 
party at 8: 30, and those with tickets to 
the 9:30 screening may attend the 
party from 7:30 p.m. until time for 
the showing. There will be a brief 
program at approximately 8:45 p.m. 
when both groups are in Prather 
Coliseum for the party. 

Steel Magnolias , a Tri-Star Pic- 
tures presentation, is a bittersweet 
comedy about how six Southern 
women touch each other's lives over 
a two-year period. The screenplay, 
written by Natchitoches playwright 
Robert Harling, is based on his award- 
winning off-Broadway play. 

Herbert Ross directed the film, 
which was produced by Ray Stark. 
Steel Magnolias stars Sally Field, 
Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, 
Dary 1 Hannah, Olympia Dukakis and 
Julia Roberts.

Evans, Wilson represent Northwestern 


Staff Writer 

At the Sept. 27 run-off, North- 
western State University students 
bestowed the honor of Mr. and Miss 
NSU to Allen Evans and Cindy 
Wilson respectively. Service and 
contribution to the improvement of 
of student life at Northwestern have 
been part of Wilson's and Evans' 
routine while attending NSU. 

has been involved in a variety of 
campus activities. A member of 
Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority, she has 
served on the spirit committee, pledge 
review board, sisterhood committee 
and as homecoming chairman. 

Elected Greek Woman of the Year 
in 1988, she has been Panhellenic 
president for the past two years and 
served as Greek Week chairman. She 
has also been a Rho Chi for the past 
three years. 

"I feel very honored to represent 
Northwestern in this capacity," said 
Wilson. "I was very surprised when I 

won because I knew the competition 
was tough." 

Northwestern is a strong tradition 
that runs in the Wilson family. Both 
of her parents graduated from NSU, 
as well as other family members. 
Wilson said she hopes the tradition 
continues as she is encouraging her 
four younger sisters to attend NSU. 

After Wilson graduates in the fall 
of 1990, she plans to become a field 
representative for Sigma Sigma 
Sigma sorority where she will travel 

to Tri Sigma chapters across the 
country to advise them. 

"I am very excited — I consider 
being elected Mr. NSU a very big 
honor," said Evans, a native of Natchi- 
toches. Evans also comes from a 
family of Demons. His three older 
sisters graduated form NSU and his 
brother is currently a junior. 

A member of Kappa Sigma frater- 
nity, Evans has served as Luau chair- 
man, formal chairman and grand 
master of ceremonies. He was also

agement and Phi Beta Lambda, as 
well as being a member of the dean 's 

Evans, a member of the Student 
Government Association, has served 
as a senior senator, co-chairman of 
the St Denis Jubilee committee and 
as a member of the State Fair Com- 

Evans plans to attend Loyola 
University's law school after he 
graduates in December 1989. 

While serving as Mr. and Miss 
NSU, Evans and Wilson will speak at 
the fall and spring commencements, 
as well as ride in the Christmas Fes-

LSC receives $140,000 NEH grant 

isiana Scholars' College at North- 
western State University has been 
awarded a $140,000 grant from the 
National Endowment for the Humani- 
ties to assist the college in the devel- 
opment of a comprehensive four- 
year curriculum in the liberal arts. 

Dr. Grady Ballenger, associate 
professor of English and director of 
the Louisiana Scholars' College, said 
the three-year grant will fund activi- 
ties focused on the college's "great 
works" seminars and lecture series, 
the four-semester Texts and Tradi- 
tions course on western culture and 
the junior seminar, Democratic Vis- 
tas, which is devoted to American 

With the support of the National 
Endowment of the Humanities, LSC 
will offer a series of summer work- 
shops to enable its faculty to refine 
these interdisciplinary courses and to 

develop other offerings in the hu- 

Using the material developed in 
the summer workshops, the college 
will also offer weekend workshops 
for secondary teachers throughout the 
state at Natchitoches Central High 

"Perhaps most exciting for the 
college and the university commu- 
nity will be the series of lectures by 
distinguished scholars from around 
the nation to be held throughout the 
three-year period covered by the 
grant," said Ballenger. 'These visit- 
ing lecturers will lead workshops and 
give public talks on some of the great 
works studied in the college, from the 
ancient Gilgamesh epic to the poetry 
of Robert Frost and Adrienne Rich." 

Ballenger noted that the National 
Endowment for the Humanities grant 
will provide funds to acquire books 
for the university's library, as well as 

audio-visual materials to supportnew 
humanities courses offered in the 

Associate professor of classics and 
art history professor Dr. Jean 
D'Amato, who wrote the grant for 
LSC, said that aside from enabling 
the development of a more compre- 
hensive curriculum for the college, 
NEH support also offers strong na- 
tional confirmation of the goals and 
programs of the LSC, which was 
established at Northwestern in 1987. 

"With its selection in this national 
competition, LSC will receive recog- 
nition in such respected publications 
as Humanities and the Chronicle of 
Higher Education," said D'Amato. 
"In addition, since funded projects 
become public property, the proposal 
submitted to the NEH will be read 
nationwide as a model for other uni- 
versities to follow in the develop- 

ment of rigorous undergraduate pro- 
grams in the liberal arts." 

According to Ballenger, grant 
activities will begin in the summer of 
1990 and will continue for three 
academic years. In the first summer, 
the Scholars' College's science and 
humanities faculty members will 
participate in a workshop to enrich 
their understanding of the western 
tradition from its origins through the 
18th century. Guest speakers for next 
summer's workshop will faculty 
members from Tufts University, 
Howard University and Vanderbilt 

During the fall and spring semes- 
ters of 1990-91, workshops for sec- 
ondary school faculty will be con- 
ducted once a semester. Topics dis- 
cussed in these workshops will in- 
clude the ancient theater and contem- 
porary musical theater. 

The first use of 
Northwestern's state-of- 
the-art satellite technol- 
ogy occurred Monday, 
September 26, at the Lou- 
isiana School for Math, 
Science and the Arts. 

The uplink was used 
for the broadcast of a 
panel of Louisiana

state officials, including 
Representative Jimmy

pating in the Close-Up

encing program. The

Rule generates unnecessary letter 

Dear Editor, 

I have several suggestions con- 
cerning the problem of rowdy punks 
standing and (please excuse the vul- 
gar language) cheering at the football 
games. It is clear that under current 
conditions, rules requiring fans to sit 
in awed and silent reverence at games 
are unenforcable. We do not cur- 
rently have a sufficiently large police 
force to effectuvely control an unruly 
crowd. (Those opposed to this rule 
really should not hold it against the 
police, they are only following or- 
ders.) With a few minor adaptations 
to the stadium, the situation could be 
brought under control. 1 propose that 
we install seat belts and shoulder 
harnesses in each seat, then no one 
would be able to stand. Those not 
wearing seat belts and shoulder har- 

nesses in each seat, then no one would 
be able to stand. Those not wearing 
seat belts could be issued citations by 
the police. It would both control the 
crowd and generate funds (through 
the pay men t of fines) to develop other 
crowd control measures. When we 
had sufficient funds, we could pur- 
chase backpacks for each ticket 
holder. These backpacks would be 
issued upon entering the stadium and 
the fans would not be allowed to 
leave the stadium until they returned 
the backpack. These backpacks 
would contain air cushion devices 
activated by loud noises. With good 
directional sound detectors focused 
on the individual directly in back of 
the fan wearing the backpack, you 
could also control crowd noise. 
Excessive cheering would trigger 

the air cushion which would open 

and pin the fan to his seat, blocking 
bis mou th and thus preventing him 
from cheering. With imagination, 
I am sure we could come up with other 
effective crowd control measures. 

The point is this. Unenforcable 
rules will not be obeyed by those who 
choose to do otherwise. Where an- 
gels reasonably and rationally fear to 
tread, the rest of us should follow 
suit Society has more rules and more 
rule makers than it now needs. Rules 
should be generated only when nec- 
essary. Unnecessary rules generate 
unnecessary responses. This letter is 
a prime example.

Greeks should show consideration 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing to the articles con- 
cerning the McNeese football game. 

You have only heard from one 
side about the incident. I think in all 
fairness you should hear from one of 
the disgrunded fans that complained 
about not being able to see. 

I did not have to pay to get in 
because I am a student but the people 
behind me were from out of town and 
did have to pay. I could have sat 
somewhere else but I chose to sit 
close to the band and fraternities 
because of the excitement and team 

spirit they project. 

I have nothing against cheering as 
I did so myself. My complaint was 
the people were standing most of the 
i game and we were not able to see 
many of the plays and missed out on 
most of half-time. When I did see the 
game and cheered I made sure I was 
not obstructing anyone's view which 
I feel is common courtesy. 

In response to Mr. Foy's article, I 
am a parent. My children are not old 
enough to be in a fraternity or soror- 
ity yet, but when they are I would 
expect them to conduct themselves in 

a responsible way and respect others. 
Mr. Foy apparently did not see all 
that was going on. Due to his affili- 
ation with the fraternity he stood up 
for them as I probably would have 
done if I had been in his shoes. I think 
he should have found out the whole 
story before he commented. 

I will continue to sit behind the 
fraternities as I always have whether 
I can see or not because I enjoy the 
spirit they have but I would hope they 
would consider their fellow fans that 
we may all enjoy the game.

Writer agrees on prejudice problem, 
but finds different solution to issue 

Dear Editor, 

I noticed the article by the appar- 
ently upset Mr. Mitchell in the last 
issue of the Sauce. I must concur 
with Mr. Mitchell that prejudice is a 
problem in today's society. I must 
point out, however, that Northwest- 
em shouldn't be targeted because of 
one northern town. True, I also see 
and hear about prejudice all the lime, 
but I don' t believe that it is something 
that can be dealt with on a social 
level. Mr. King initiated the change 
in society over 20 years ago, which 
eventually lead to blacks finally re- 
ceiving their rights, which was long 

This is where I start to differ from 
Mr. Mitchell in my opinions. I be- 
lieve that prejudice today can only be 

solved in the home. To somewhat 
clear this up, remember that the par- 
ents of today were raised when civil 
rights were a big issue. Many of 
these people still hold to the opinions 
of their "southern" parents. Being in 
the south does matter. The south is 
strong in tradition and as history 
proves is often reluctant to change. 
Today's young adults hold the key to 
an improved world, but only if they 
pass these ideas of equality to their 
children can there be true change. 

I know this probably won't help 
you feel better, but from this short 
white boy, as I've often been called, 
try to remember that prejudice is in 
all people and is not directed solely at 
you, just your color. I have met you 
and would be proud to call you my 

friend. Although I disagree with 
whites dating blacks, I do not con- 
sider myself prejudiced and do not 
wish to be named as one because of 
my belief. I consider all men to be 
created equal. 

In short, I agree that there is a 
problem yet to be solved. I feel, 
however, that the solution to this 
problem mustbegin in the home. For 
now, all I can say is that there are 
those of use who dislike prejudice as 
much and (in my case) have felt its 
sting. My suggestion is to never let it 
destroy who you are. Prejudice can 
never conquer the true person in all of 

Todd Dupree 

Dear Editor, 

In the wake of my previous ar- 
ticle, this has been a very interesting 
week. I have had numerous discus- 
sions with a wide variety of people 
here, both black and white, and of 
course, the reviews were mixed. 

First of all, I would like to apolo- 
gize to the all of the Greek organiza- 
tions that were mentioned before, 
because it was never my intention to 
insult anyone affiliated with them. 
My message did not deal in drawing 
more lines of distinction between any 
of us; there are already far too many 
divisions between any of us. 

My argument was designed to give 
the students of Northwestern, every 
last one of us, a chance to think about 
something that we all have taken for 
granted at some point I think that it 
is important that respect is given to 
every single person based based upon 
character and not color. There is so 
much work to be done, and the time is 

I understand that the Black Cau- 
cus Association is beginning to take 
shape, and that is wonderful step in 
the right direction. I believe that it is 
vital that more college students act 
on their passions constructively, and 
try to have some positive input on 
their environment. That very point is 
the focus of this particular article. 

The Student Life Enrichment 
Committee of the Louisiana Schol- 
ars' College is sponsoring a talk show 

on the subject of race relations to- 
night and I believe that it is crucial for 
the students of this university to at- 
tend. This show offers a follow-up to 
my article, so that people can speak 
openly and honestly about the issue 
of racism. I took an awfully big risk 
to even mention the subject, much 
less to do so in the college newspa- 
per, because I feel like we cannot try

Part four in a series 

Everyone goes through periods of 
"the blues." But when it goes on for 
a long time, or has side effects that 
make even small things difficult to 
accomplish, you may be suffering 
from depression. Understanding the 
causes and signs of depression, can 
help you or someone you care for 
seek appropriate treatment. Depres- 
sion can be devastating, but help is 

Depression can be caused by 
overwhelming losses such as the death 
of a friend, severe illness, or divorce. 
Some people have difficulty facing 
the sadness, anger, shame, orremorse 
that can go along with such an event. 
They become depressed as their feel- 
ings numb. 

People who feel powerless over a 
situation often feel depressed. For 
example, those with very high stan- 
dards may feel especially bad when 
they try hard, yet fail to meet their 

goals. If someone dies, they may be 
certain they could have prevented it. 
If they're fired from a job, they may 
blame themselves again and again, 
rather than let go of tlieir disappoint- 

Loneliness and lack of affection 
car causa depression. Turning anger 
inside, which is more common for 
women than for men, is another cause. 
Expressing anger in a healthy way 
can help relieve it. Physical condi- 
tions such as hidden food alergies, 
poor diet, or low blood sugar can also 
cause depression. 

Someone who is depressed may 
show signs such as loss of interest in 
home and work, frequent crying, 
change in eating habits: eating too 
much or too little; unexplained nerv- 
ousness or grouchiness, poor self- 

When someone is depressed, life 
lose.-; its sparkle and meaning. Spend- 

ing time with a special freind can 
help. But sometimes, the depression 
hangs on stubbornly for weeks or 
months. If you or someone close to 
you is experiencing this kind of de- 
pression, seek professional counsel- 
ing. Depending on the severity of the 
condition, treatment may include 
aerobic exercise, such as running or 
swimming; practicing positive self- 
talk; scheduling activities through- 
out the day; eliminating foods from 
the diet to which the person is aller- 
gic; vitamin B6, folic acid, and/or 
niacin supplements; eating a sugar- 
free diet; and medication, if indi- 

days and bad days. But, given the 
choice, who wouldn't prefer to feel 
good? By using the following tech- 
niques you can learn how to enjoy 
life more, and turn those bad days 

into good ones in no time. 

A massage or eating a wonderful 
meal can be physical pleasures that 
make life worth living. Enjoy regular 
physical activity such as dancing, 
playing softball or taking walks, to 
uplift your spirits. 

A support network is a group of 
people you can turn to for comfort, a 
sympathetic ear, or good ideas. A 
support network can include family 
members, friends, coworkers, or 
anyone who cares about you. Reach 
out and make your network wider; 
you'll be glad you did. 

Making time for fun is like taking 
extra vacations thoughout the year. 
What are your favorite amusements? 
Movies, day trips into the country, 
going to a fair can all be fun. Get out 
of your chair and get going! You'll 
feel good before, during and after.

The hilarious, yet touching com- 
r drama is being directed by Vicki 
of North western's Depart- 

ment of Creative and Performing Arts. 
Technical direction for the true-life 
production is by Vernon Carroll, 
newly-appointed technical director 

The play, which has become one 
of the most produced plays in the past 
two years throughout the United 
States, is set in Truvy's beauty salon 
in Chinquapin, La., where the motto 
is "there's no such thing as natural 

In the play, theatre patrons will 
meet Tru vy Jones (played by Melissa 
Trumblepf New Orleans), the 40ish 
owner of the beauty shop, and her 
assistant, nineteen year-old Annelle 
(Lola Davis of Alexandria) as well as 
regular customers Clairee (Helen 
Farrar of Natchitoches), the 66ish 
grande dame and widow of the for- 
mer mayor, Ouiser (Leah McGee of 
Natchitoches), the 66ish wealthy 
miser, and M'Lynn (Kelly Graham 
of Metairie), the 50ish and socially 

prominent career woman. 

The audience will also meet S helby 
(Patty Breckenridge of Kingwood, 
Tex.), M'Lynn's daughter and the 
prettiest girl in town, on her wedding 
day. Shelby's wedding colors are 
blush and bashful, or as M'Lynn says, 
"pink and pink — that sanctuary looks 
like its been hosed down with Pepto 

Through the two and one-half year 
period of the play , these women share 
not only the joys that life brings, but 
also the sorrows. They are together 
when the worries of Shelby's diabe- 
tes surface and reveal with deft in- 
sight and uncanny wit the strength of 
women everywhere. 

Natchitoches is the setting for this 
true-life story, one that was inspired 
by the death of Harling's thirty-two 
year-old sister Susan, a diabetic who 
died in 1985 following a difficult 
childbirth and subsequent kidney, 
transplant operation. Harling's lovr-j 

ing and very personal accountof what 
happened to Susan is dedicated to her 
sqn and his nephew, Robert. 

I Ti:><rv 

Steel Magnolias began as a short 
story, something for Harling to pro- 
vide his nephew and namesake with 
"a sense of her past." It is a comedy, 
Harling says, because "even in the 
darkest hours there is stuff that makes 
you giggle. That's what my sister 
would like more than anything — to 
know that we were able to laugh." 
Prom short story form, Harling con- 
Verted this intriguing work into his 
first play, a bittersweet comedy which 
was originally presented at the WPA 
Theatre, is now in its third year of 
performances at the Lucille Lortel 
Theatre, where nearly all of the seven 
shows each week at the 300-seat off- 
Broadway theatre are sellouts. 

While continuing their phenome- 
nal run off-Broadway, Steel Magno- 

lias are blooming all over the coun- 
try, especially in a national touring 
production starring Barbara Rush and 
Marion Ross. The movie version of 
Steel Magnolias, with screenplay also 
by Harling, was filmed last summer 
in Natchitoches and on the campus of 
Northwestern State University. The 

Tri-Star Pictures presentation will be 
given a Natchitoches premiere Fri- 
day, November 10. The film was 
directed by Herbert Ross and pro- 
duced by Ray Stark. Steel Magnolias 
stars Sally Field, Dolly Parton, 
Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, 
Olympia Dukakis and Julia Roberts.

the university nurse, but it also al- 
lows students to see a doctor with the 
counseling of the infirmary nurse. 
The costs will cover the doctor' s visit 

The student insurance covers 
those students who enter the hospital 
with emergency situations only. With 
this distinction, students must under- 
stand that not all costs are covered. 

Students who are not aware of these 
costs, should go by the mfirmary 
nurse and request the Standard Life 
Insurance pamphlet which explains 
all benefits of the insurance plan. 

If a student becomes ill during 
infirmary hours, he should go to the 
infirmary with a student I.D. and see 
the infirmary nurse. If she cannot 
treat the illness with over the counter 

drugs, she will then make an appoint- 
ment with a doctor. The infirmary fee 
will cover the doctor's visit but not 
medication, shots, or lab work. 

If a student becomes ill after infir- 
the emergency room at the hospital 
for counseling. If the student needs 
immediate attention, he should go to 
the emergency room at the hospital. 
However, the student insurance will 
cover only certain expenses. If a stu- 
dent cannot pay for prescription 
medicines, one could charge the 
medicine to their parents at Causey's 
and/or the University Pharmacy. 

According to Anna Harrington, 
last week over 103 students went to 
the infirmary for sore throat related 
problems. Two of these 103 students 
were diagnosed as having mono.

Guaranteed only when sola by professional hair stylists. 



Therefore, students should be aware

Difficult elections yield positive results 

Staff Writer 

Every year at Northwestern two 
deserving students are selected to 
receive the highest honor and awarded 
to NSU students, Mr. and Miss NSU. 
This year Cindy Wilson and Allen 
Evans were selected as the new Mr. 
and Miss NSU at the run-off election 

of September 28. Kim Dowden and 
Scott Andrews were selected fort the 
senator at large positions and Chad 
Melancon was selected as freshman 

During the September 20 elec- 
tions the SGA senators, Homecom- 
ing Court and State Fair court .vere 
chosen. Janelle Ainsworth, Shelly 
Benson, Stephanie Causey, Christi 
Cloutier, Linda Davis, Lola Davis, 
Karen Engeron, Lisa Lukowski 
(Queen), Keri Moses and Sheila 
Sampite were selected to the home- 
coming court. 

Cindy Bethel (Queen) Liz Bon- 
ette, Dawn Coleman, Dayna Dooley, 
Laurie House, Holly Methvin, Mel- 
ody Smith, Jennifer Walsh, Laura 
Willis and Cindy Wilson were cho- 
sen for the State Fair Court. 

The following students were 
elected as new senators: Leslie Blake, 
freshman senator; Shelly Benson, 
sophomore sen.; Ashley Knotts, 
sophomore sen.; Sheila Sampite, 
junior sen., and Todd Allen, junior 

"It was harder to have the elec- 
tions together but it provided an 
opportunity for more girls to be on 
the ballot for homecoming and state 
fair court," said Sarah Robinson, 
commissioner of elections. 

In the past, elections were held on 
separate day s for Homecoming Court, 
State Fair Court and the Senate. 

"Having all the elections together 
was more trouble and was hard trying 
to get everything together but we did 
have a big turnout," Robinson said. 

Over 800 students voted in the 
Sept. 20 election and approximately 
400 students voted in the run-off

Exchange program offers change of venue 

Staff Writer 

The International Student Ex- 
change Program has been helping 
American students study in foreign 
countries since 1979. Nearly 200 
ISEP institutions, including North- 
western State University.conductex- 
changes on a one-to-one reciprocal 

Through ISEP, member college 
and universities can receive and send 
an equal number of students on inter- 
national exchanges without a sub- 
stantial extra cost to the college or to 
the students. This is accomplished 
because ISEP is based on a reciprocal 
exchange of benefits. Each student 
from the United States pays his insti- 
tution an ISEP program fee based on 
regular tuition, fees and room and 

Family Day

NATCHITOCHES— The results 
are in from the Family Day Golf 
Scramble! The event was well at- 
tended and all participants are 

The winners are John Witham, 
Melanie McGill, Bob McGill, Steve 
Morrison, Jesse Morrison, Leon 
Darden with 8 under par. 

The winners of the 9 hole scram- 
bel are Greg Robertson, Joe 
Robertson, Jimmy Robertson, Scott 
Blevins, Brian Warburton with 7 
under par. 

Congratulations to all winners, and 
again, thank you all for your partici- 

board. This creates a "place" for a 
non-U.S. student Each participating 
foreign student also makes a place 
for a U.S. student. Therefore, stu- 
dents exchange one-for-one. 

Besides enroll- 
ment in full-time study, a student on 
an ISEP exchange will receive serv- 
ices such as health care, sports facili- 
ties, orientation and room and board 
for the entire exchange period in- 
cluding vacations. 

With nearly 100 ISEP opportuni- 
ties in Africa, Asia, Australia, Can- 
ada, Europe and Latin America, stu- 
dents can easily find a location that is 
right for them. Students who only 
speak English can study in the United 
Kingdom and Australia, as well as 
other countries. 

To be eligible for an ISEP ex- 
change, a student must be a regularly 
enrolled student in good academic 

standing, have been enrolled in an 
ISEP institution for a specific period 
of time, and normally have a strong 
academic background in his major 

To take part in ISEP, a student 
must first apply at his institution and 
be selected. At Northwestern, appli- 
cations and an ISEP directory can be 
obtained from Tommy Whitehead in 
room 103, Kyser hall. 

After a student is nominated and 
selected, ISEP then reviews the 
nomination and propose a particular 
placement to a host institution. A 
student is sent an offer of placement 
with full information about the study 
site. If the offer is officially accepted, 
the process is complete. For ex- 
changes beginning between June and 
October 1990, ISEP will review ap- 
plications and start placement deci- 
sions on March 1, 1990.

Northwestern stomps SW Texas, 31-14 

Staff Writer 

Northwestern State, after two 
straight home victories, appear to have 
cured their problems on the road, 
upping their record to 3-2 and 2-0 in 
conference as they lengthened mul- 
tiple winning streaks with a 31-14 
victory over surprising Southwest 
Texas State. 

The Demons locked up their third 
straight victory Saturday with a 17- 
point fourth quarter flurry, 267 yards 
rushing, and their bestdefensive show 
of the season. 

"The opening drive was just fan- 
tastic," said coach Sam Goodwin after 
the third straight game in which the 
Demons have scored on their first 
possession. This was also their ninth 
straight Southland Conference win 
and their fifth straight SLC road vic- 

The Demon scoring was guided 
by senior quarterback Scott Stoker, 
who ran for 1 18 yards and two touch- 
downs, and passed for a third, a 22- 
yard toss^ to Jerry Roberson. That 
was the best rushing game by a NSU 
quarterback in 19 years. 

The NSU defense was not idle. 
They were led by Southland Confer- 
ence "Defensive Player of the Week" 
Mitch Rowe, who had nine tackles, 
four for negative yardage, two forced 
fumbles, a batted pass and two quar- 
terback sacks. Other defensive stand- 
outs included sophomore Andre 
Carron with 18 tackles and corner- 
back Randy Hilliard, who intercepted 
the pass Rowe tipped and returned it 
for a touchdown. It was Hilliard' s 
third interception in the last three 
games and third touchdown return of 
his career. 

The Demons dominated the first 
quarter, scoring on their first drive 
and then ending the quarter with a 
drive that scored again 28 seconds 
into the second quarter, with Scott 
Stoker bringing the ball in from five 
yards out. 

The Bobcats answered with touch- 
downs in the second and third quar- 
ters on 9- and 1-yard runs by running 
back Gerard Bickham. Bickhamhad 
33 yards of SWT's total 138 rushing. 
But the Demons were only getting 
warmed up. 

With less then a minute left in the 
third quarter, Mark Contreras com- 
pleted a 17-yard pass to freshman 
Adrian Hardy on a fake punt to keep 
the drive alive. Twelve plays later, 
kicker Chris Hamler gave the De- 
mons a 17- 14 lead with his fifth field 
goal of the season, this one 22 yards. 

Three plays later, MitchRoweand 
Randy Hilliard upped the lead an- 
other seven points with their tip-and- 
interception connection. 

Northwestern would score again 
on a 13-play, 64-yard drive capped 
by Stoker's 1-yard run. The drive 
had started when defensive end Greg 
Necaise fell on a fumble caused by 
Mitch Rowe. 

The Demons ended the game with 
style when sophomore Chad 
McDavid returned an interception 5 1 
yards to Southwest Texas' 18,butthe 
Demons didn't have enough time to 

Northwestern will be bringing 
their streaks back home this week for 
Homecoming, and trying to win their 
tenth in a row at home against the No. 
1 ranked University of North Texas 
Eagles. The Eagles, 3-1, are coming 
off a 20-17 loss to Kansas State for 

the Wildcat's first victory after 30 
straight losses. 

The Eagles are led by quarterback 
Scott Davis who, in his first start 
ever, beat NSU 15-13 in Turpin Sta- 
dium in 1987. 

"His versatility is remarkable," 
said Goodwin. "Not only is he a great 
passer, he's a great athlete. He was 

good last year, good enough to be the 
conference offensive player of the 
year. Now he's a year older." 

Last year the Demons won this 
meeting 25-17 at Denton in 25-mile 
per hour winds. NSU had won six 
straight while UNT had dropped out 
of the No. 1 spot the week before with 
a loss to Stephen F. Austin.

1939 Demons: 'Just a good all-around team' 

The 29-mi 
month im 
field, in tf 




Itisa football team's dream. Notre 
Dame did it last year. Penn State did 
it the year before. They reached the 
apex all football teams strive for., .the 
unbeaten season. While Notre Dame, 
Penn State, and Miami can all claim 
that honor, only the best sports trivia 
players know that Northwestern State 
University can claim a spot on that 
most sought unbeaten list. 

1939 was apivotal year in history. 
It saw the start of World War II and 
ClarkGable and Vivian Leigh in Gone 
With the Wind . Back then, there was 
a small college, primarily a teacher's 
education institution, Louisiana 
Normal School, which later became 
Northwestern State University. While 
major events were reshaping the 
world, there was something special 
happening at this little school, par- 
ticularly with its football team. 

The Louisiana Normal football 
team , a predominantly senior led club, 
took the field against Centenary 
College for its first game and came 
away with 15-0 victory. Little did the 
team know 1 1 games later when 
they defeated Southwestern Louisi- 
ana 6-0, they would finish the season 
not only undefeated, but would set 
and still hold the Northwestern rec- 

ord for most wins in a season. 

The team, led by coach Harry 
"Rags" Turpin and assistant coach 
and future Louisiana Tech Head 
Coach Joe Aillet ended the season 
with the Louisiana Intercollegiate 
Conference and Southern Intercolle- 
giate Athletic Association Champi- 
onships. They were ranked fourth 
nationally by seasons end and were 
mentioned on the Walter Winchell 
Show, a noted New York broadcaster 
of the day. 

While the 1966 team finished 
unbeaten with nine wins and last 
year's Southland Conference Cham- 
pion team finished with 10 victories, 
that 1939 squad still can claim the 
mark of the best Northwestern team 
in history. 

"We were an unusually good 
team," said starting right tackle and 
Natchitoches native Roy Gentry, Sr. 
"We may not have been the best team 
here, but there hasn ' t been a team any 
better," said Gentry of his team which 
outscored their opponents 195-18 that 

Beating the competition that badly 
can make other teams tend to back 
down. The Normal squad was no 
exception. At the end of that season, 
Coach Turpin extended post-season 
game invitations to LSU and Ala- 

bama. Both teams refused to play. 

Just what formula sets the great 
teams apart from the rest? Gentry 
feels the experience of playing to- 
gether may have been the key. 

"We were a good freshman team. 
Freshman couldn't play varsity, but 
our freshman team could go out and 
beat the varsity team any day of the 
week, " said Gentry. "We played 
together from our freshman year on 
and picked up some key players by 
our senior year." 

Another part of that winning for- 
mula could have been team balance 
and good coaching. Back-up quar- 
terback, also Natchitoches native, Ted 
Wright thinks that may have played a 

"We were just a good all around 
team," said Wright who was a sopho- 
more that year. "We had a good 
bunch of boys who didn't like to lose. 
We were also one of the first units to 
play our first and second teams in- 
stead of having players play both 
ways (offense and defense)." 

Coach Turpin also played a big 
role in the success of that year. "He 
was a fine fellow... an understanding 
man," said Wright. "He was a good 
teacher," said Creighton. "He was a 
man of high morals." 

Creighton was overwhelmed by 

the whole experience. "It was a great 
feeling. A lot of talent came together 
thatyear,"saidCreighton. "Although 
it was my last year, I was elated. 
There was just a lot of camaraderie 
among us. I don't think we realized 
at the time how special that year 

This weekend that 1939 team will 
be honored in a special homecoming 
ceremony. Some of the 36 team 
members have passed away and some 
will be unable to come, but you can 
count on a number of the team to be 
there; namely Gentry, Wright, and 
Creighton. They pledged to be there 
enthusiastically. While the ceremony 
is foremost in their minds, one can't 
help but wonder if the modern day 
Demons remind them of the days 
when Louisiana Normal was any- 
thing but normal.

Head Northwestern State basket- 
ball coach Dan Bell has decided to 
bring basketball at NSU into a work 
of art, literally. That's right, the 
swwwiissssh you may hear echoing 
through the pillars of Prather Coli- 
seum ispaintbrushes, not basketballs. 

Under the supervision of graduate 
assistant coach Kevin Johnson, the 
Demon basketball team has put in 
several voluntary hours repainting 
the playing floor of Prather Coli- 

Due to a tight budget, coach Dan 
Bell wanted to spend as little money 
as possible to improve the appear- 
ance of the coliseum. 

"We thought it was time for a 
change in the appearance of the floor 
and we wanted to make it look more 
appealing," said Bell. 

Some changes include the removal 
of the center circle and the NSU logo 
which will be replaced with a block

Lady Demons to host Tech dogs

Last weekend marked the end of 
gjor league baseball's regular sea- 
8i and most people have turned their 
ies to the fall classic or to the NFL.

The 29-man squad has spent the 
i month improving their skills on 
! field, in the weight room, and in 
sclassroom. "We have spent some 

extra time on hitting, pitching, and 
defense day in and day out," said 

The Demons have already played 
6 of the 16 scrimmages slated for the 
fall season and have posted a 5-1 

"We are happy with our perform- 
ance so far especially our hitting," 
said Wells. "We will begin to play 
twice a week and will also conduct 
intrasquad scrimmages throughout 
the week." 

NSU will host Centenary this 
Friday in a double-header that begins 

at 1 o'clock. 

Besides baseball, another area of 
emphasis for Wells is his players 
education. "A study hall session has 
been installed for all freshman and 
upperclassmen that don't meet our 
grade requirements. It's important to 
us to see our athletes graduate," said 

When asked about the area he is 
most pleased with, Wells said, "I've 
been most impressed with the team's

followed by Southwestern 62, 
McNeese 72, UNO 92, NSU 100, LA

who did not have scores recorded due

"I was hoping to finish fourth and 
behind them," said Maggio. 

"I'm not disappointed. We ran 
against a lot of tough teams on a very 
challenging course," said Maggio.- 

Men ' s coach Robert Ferguson said 
his team ran OK but no one finished 
in the top ten. 

"We ran together and had a gap 
time of :56 between our first and fifth 
place finisher but we need to finish 
higher," said Ferguson. 

Both teams will be out of action

"It's a very tough course and I'll 
be interested to see how the team 
does," said coach Terry Gandy. 

At least six teams will compete in 
the tournament including: NSU, 
Louisiana Tech, New Orleans, Tu- 
lane, Southeastern Louisiana, and 

"Our goal is to break 310 in the 
tournament. We were in the 330's 

earlier in the season but we have 
taken a lot of strokes off of our score," 
said Gandy. 

Gandy hopes to get his team to 
break 300 by the spring season. 

"If we break 300 we will win some 
tournaments," said Gandy. 

Last weekend the team hosted a 
three-man scramble fund raiser to 
help cover the cost of the trip. 

Ten teams were entered in the 18

Job Workshops 

The Center for Career Planning 
and Placement has scheduled a series 
of workshops for the Fall Semester to 
acquaint students with services, ac- 
tivities, and resources available. A 
variety of times and dates make the 
workshops accessible to all. 

In the Resume Writing Workshop, 
the primary purpose of the resume is 
to help a person get an interview with 
an employer or to further describe 
qualifications beyond the interview 
and application information already 
provided to an employer. It is an 
ART to prepare an effective resume 
and requires time to do so. What to 
put in it, what to leave out, and how to 
use it, are included in this workshop. 
It will be held Tuesday, October 3, 
from 11:00 til 12:00 noon, and 
Wednesday, October 4, from 3:00 til 
4:00 p.m. 

In the Interviewing & Letter- 
writing Workshop, successful job 
interviews depend on the candidate's 
ability to assess skills, abilities, apti- 
tudes, then communicate these to 
prospective employers. Preparing 
effective cover letters to impress 
prospective employers will also be 
addressed. It will be held on Tues- 
day, October 10, from 1 1 :00 til 12:00 
noon, and Wednesday, October 11, 
from 3:00 til 4:00 p.m. 

In the Job Search & How To Use 
The Placement Office workshop, 

good jobs are most often found by 
those who know how to use all 
sources: newspapers, magazines, 
yellow pages, library, contacts, 
employment agencies, trade publica- 
tions.and personal contacts. Included 
in this session is the traditional method 
of job search, "exploring the hidden 
job market," building a network of 
contacts, and how to identify the 
person with the power to hire. Also 
included is information on utilizing 
the Norhtwestern Office of Career 
Planning and Placement. It will be 
held on Tuesday, October 17, from 
11:00 til 12:00 noon, and Wednes- 
day, October 18, from 3:00 til 4:00 

The workshops are scheduled in 
Room 321, NSU Student Union. 

Christmas Festival 

The second annual Natchitoches 
Christmas Festival Patrons Drive, a 
door-to-door solicitation of financial 
support for the city ' s internationally- 
famous holiday celebration, is set for 
Tuesday, October 3. 

Cathy Sutton, chairman of the 
Patrons Drive committee, said vol- 

unteers will solicit donations next 
Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. around the 

The initial Patrons Drive last year 
raised more than $10,000, which 
covered about 25 percent of the esti- 
mated $38,000-40,000 in expenses 
to put on the annual Christmas Festi- 
val. More than 100,000 visitors crowd 
into Natchitoches during the first 
week of December with the big cele- 
bration coming with a flurry of pa- 
rades, parties and fireworks on the 
first Saturday in December. 

The fireworks display alone car- 
ries a $20,000 price tag, she said. 
Donations of any amount are helpful, 
she said. "If you're not home, our 
volunteers will leave a note explain- 
ing why they came by and asking for 
a response and a donation," she said. 

The Patrons Drive has five dona- 
tion levels: Mistletoe and Holly ($10 
and under), Santa's Elves ($11-25), 
Christmas Angels ($26-50), 
Rudolph's Reindeer ($51-99) and 
Magnolia Magic ($100 and above). 

This year's Christmas Festival is 
the city's 63rd annual celebration. 
Ryan and Ginger Horton are chair- 
persons of the Christinas Festival 
Committee for 1989.

Northwestern Demon Spotlights: 

Scott Stoker 

Sports Editor 

Cool, calm, and collective are three 
words that can be used to describe 
Scott S toker, the starting quarterback 
for the Northwestern State Demons. 
In fact, another word that can almost 
sum up the Demon quarterback is 
consistent. That one word, consis- 
tency, is the downfall of many foot- 
ball quarterbacks on college cam- 
puses today. 

What else can you expect, but a 
steady performance each time out 
from the preseason Ail-American. 
Stoker was recognized by magazines 
such as the College Football Preview 
and The Sporting News as one of the 
best at his position in the country. 

This past week' s performance was 
much the same, 195 yards total of- 
fense and most of that was on the 
ground. Stoker rushed for 1 18 yards 
as he led the Demon attack, the most 
by any Demon quarterback in 19 
years. Stoker ran for two touch- 
downs as well as threw for another, a 
ten yard strike to wide out Jerry Rober- 

Last season Stoker set a school 
record with 1,966 yards passing in a 
single season. That mark surpassing 
New Orleans Saint's star, Bobby 

I've heard a lot of talk of how 
small Stoker is in stature, but forget 
about all of that This is certainly no 
David and Goliath story. This is

Staff Writer 

The last day to drop a class was 
Monday, Oct. 9. The cards had to be 
turned in at 4:30 p.m. in the 
Registrar's office. 

There are three ways of dropping 
a class. The first way is through reg- 
istration. You can drop a class and 
not be responsible for that class' fee. 

The second way is dropping after 
the late registration date up until the 
first six weeks. A "W" is put in the 
computer and is kept on the student ' s 
transcript to show that it was with- 
drawn, and there is no reimburse- 
ment during this time. 

And, the third way is by being 
dropped by the teacher for excessive 
absences. The catalog states that 
when a student enrolled in a course 
numbered 2990 or below receives 
excessive unexcused absences (ten 
percent of the total class meetings), 
the instructor may recommend to the 
Dean of Instruction that the student 
be dropped from the rolls of that class 
and given an appropriate grade. Stu- 
dents with an unsatisfactory perform- 
ance record in the course shall re- 
ceive an "F' grade. Other students 
may receive an "X" grade indicating 
that they were dropped for excessive 

The instructor who wishes to 
dismiss a student from one of his or 
her classes must prepare and sign a 
written notice of dismissal and sub- 
mit it for approval to the department

head and dean. The notice is to in- 
clude the grade recommended by the 
instructor (either "W" or "F"). If the 
department head and the dean ap- 
prove the dismissal, copies of the 
notice will be given immediately to 
the Registrar and the student. 

The procedure for dropping is quite 
simple. The student must obtain a 
drop/ add card from their advisor, not 
from anyone else. Once approved by 
the advisor and instructor, take it to 
the registrar's office and pick up the 
receipt to show that the course has 
been dropped. 

From registration until Friday, 
Sept. 29, there were 6824 drop/ add 
cards filed from all four campuses; 
England Air Force Base, Fort Polk, 
Shreveport campus, and Natchito- 
ches campus. Within the week of 
Sept. 25 - Sept. 29, approximately 
210 cards were received. 

Monica Grappe, records manager/ 
data-entry supervisor, said, "A lot of 
students don't come back to pick up 
their drop/ add receipt It is very 
important because that is their record 
that they have dropped a class." This 
receipt is important because if by 
some chance the class that you had 
dropped appears on your grade sheet 
at the end of the semester, your re- 
ceipt is your official proof of having 
dropped that class. 

"The students don't understand 
that they need the instructor's signa- 
ture. The instructors care and need to 
know why the students are not com-

ing or why they wish to drop," said 

Some may recall the conflict last 
year with having to wait in line and 
come back much later in the week in 
order to pick up their receipts, but 
Grappe says, "We are ready for them 
this year." Some may also recall re- 
ceiving an "F" on their mid-term grade 
sheet last year. This happened be- 
cause the grade sheets were proc- 
essed before all of the drop forms 
could be put through the computer. 
Grappe added that it shouldn't hap- 
pen this year, but if it does, just call 
the Registrar' s and we can correct the 

Linda Tabor, director of enroll- 
ment services and registrar, said, "I 
encourage the students to read the 
policy in the catalog." The policy 

states mat "courses may be dropped 
without penalty during the first six 
weeks of areguiar semester," "courses 
may be dropped thereafter only with 
a grade of F," and "classes must be 
attended until officially dropped." 

The catalog also states that a stu- 
dent who wishes to drop all courses 
in which he or she is enrolled must 
accomplish an official resignation 
from the University. And, it states 
that authorization for a student to 
substitute a course for another speci- 
fied in a curriculum requires the ap- 
proval of the student's advisor, the 
head of the department which offers 
the curriculum, and the academic 
dean, but note that substitutions will 
not be authorized for courses in which 
failing grades have been received. 

Black Caucus Association takes form 

Managing Editor 

"We're not out to separate our- 
selves from the student body, but to 
promote minorities as a whole," said 
Keith Triggs, secretary of the newly- 
formed Black Caucus, an organiza- 
tion designed to involve more black 
students in campus activities. 

The main reason the Caucus was 
created was because, in the recent 
Student Government Association 
election, there was no minority rep- 
resentation in either Homecoming or 
State Fair Court. "This sort of thing 
has been building for quite some 
time," said Triggs, "but the lack of 
representation on the courts was the 

icing on the cake." 

Over 700 votes were cast in the 
court elections but, said Triggs, less 
than 100 black students voted. "There 
are over 480 blacks in the dorms here, 
but there needs to be something done 
to get them involved," he said. 

According to Triggs, more minor- 
ity participation is needed in every- 
thing from organizations to extra- 
curricular activities, remarking, "You 
seldom see blacks at the Student 
Activities Board tailgate parties." But 
if the minorities are involved on 
campus, then "they can be known 
and be elected to positions on both 
organizations and on honor courts." 

Triggs believes that the fault for 

low minority attendance at campus 
events lies with both the minorities 
and the organization that plans the 
event "Blacks don't want to go to 
activities because they are planned 
for one specific group in mind. The 
organizations that plan activities plan 
for only one group because that's the 
group that usually supports them." 

The Black Caucus plans to in- 
volve more minorities on campus by 
better representation on important 
organizations such the SGA or the 
SAB. Triggs also mentioned that 
many peopledid not know how to use 
the voting machines in the election 
and that the Caucus hopes to educate 
students in their use. "We want to 

promote Northwestern among the 
minorities and get them involved," 
said Triggs. 

Caucus officers are: Reginald 
Williams, President; Tara Washing- 
ton, Vice-President; Keith Triggs, 
Secretary; Monique Gaines, Treas- 
urer; Chena Williams, Parliamentar- 
ian; and Stacy Thyssel, Chaplain. 
Class representatives are: freshmen 
Terry Dawson and Kenneth Mc- 
Caskill; sophomores Jazmeira 
Cabrera and Keylan Fleet; juniors 
Princess Whitley and Sheledha 
Wilson; seniors Cora Charles and 
Michelle Hood. The Scholars' Col- 
lege representative is Angela Allen.

Our Opinion 



The Black Caucus Association was recently formed to promote minority 
awareness and full minority participation in all aspects of college life. 
Minority, as well as majority, student participation on campus deserves 
everyone's full support (by the way, who is the majority? and why is it black, 
not minority association?). 

If the Black Caucus Association is trying to see more involvement on cam- 
pus, then only great things can be accomplished for Northwestern as a whole. 
It is hard for any organization to have full participation — just ask any Student 
Activities Board member — and if the Black Caucus Association can alleviate 
this problem, that's great. 

However, one reason for the formation of the association was the fact that 
there were no minority students on either Homecoming or State Fair, and few 
are involved in SGA or SAB. In his letter, Mr. Williams points out that there 
are few minority students on cheerleading/danceline organizations. 

With regard to Homecoming or SAB, these are positions elected by the 
students. Anyone can become a member of SAB or SGA by volunteering. 
Cheerleading and danceline positions require a person to tryout When these 
organizations are picked, and you can't be chosen if you don't try out, a panel 
of judges picks the persons who demonstrate excellence in the appropriate 
talents, i.e. cheerleaders are judged on yells, chants, tumbling, etc. 

It is irrelevant whether someone is white, black, or checkered. If someone 
is supposed to be chosen because of "representation," then we are in store for 
some unqualified people to be chosen. The basketball team majorly consists 
of minority students. These students were chosen because they are the best 
players at what they do. 

Is Coach Bell supposed to tell the fourth black student he can't be on the 
team because there is a quota of representation to meet consisting of three 
blacks, two whites, one Hispanic, and an Asian? We can only hope the team 
is picked on talent and ability. 

The idea for equal representation of a minority is not a new one. Let's just 
hope that in the scramble for "equality," we don' t lose sight of the ultimate goal 
of full campus participation. 

Your Opinion 

Black Caucus gives minorities a chance 

Dear Editor, 

Equal representation is needed on 
the Northwestern campus, and it is 
needed now. This is the very issue 
that brought about the Black Caucus 
meeting on September 27. For too 
many years, black and other minority 
students have taken a passive stance 
on full and equal participation on this 
campus. The Pan-Hellenic Board 

decided to do something about this 
problem. The Black Caucus Asso- 
ciation was formed in conjunction 
with Pan-Hellenic to protecttherights 
and privileges of every minority stu- 
dent on campus. 

This body was not formed to sepa- 
rate or alienate black and other mi- 
nority students from white students. 
The intentions are to promote minor- 

ity awareness and full minority par- 
ticipation in all aspects of college 
life. At this point, that participation is 
lacking. Do not think that the system 
is fully responsible. Out of 489 black 
students, only 92 voted. This shows 
that minorities either are not aware or 
do not care. 

Think for a moment how the 
Homecoming game appeared to per- 

spective minority students sitting in students. In 'order for NSU to com- 

the stands. There is only one minority pete for quality minority students, it 

student on the Cheer-leading squad, must create an environment that is 

none on the dance team, none on the more attractive to them. If we don't 

pom-pon line and none on the Home- act today, together as one, the growth 

comingCourt. That'sashame. North- of this campus will begin to decline, 

western won the game, but they lost Anyone interested in fighting this 

some minority students to Grambling problem with us, come to our next 

and LSU . It is obvious that Gram- meeting at 8:15 p.m. on Thursday, 

bling and LSU attract more minority Oct 12, in Kyser room 142. 

Reginald Williams BCA President 

Does Black Caucus promote reverse racism? 

Dear Editor, 

I can't believe that it has come to 
this. I thought that I wouldn't have to 
put in my two cents over this issue, 
but I can't turn away from it any 

My opinion on this whole issue of 
minorities not being represented 
enough on this campus has me in an 
uproar. My feathers were first ruffled 
by the article written by Mr. Derek 
Mitchell. How dare you use the fra- 
ternities and sororities as an outlet to 
display your fury! To pick the Greek 
organizations that you did made you 
more enemies than you know. And 
yes, it is probably true that each of 
these organizations would be a little 
uncomfortable if the opposite race 
was at their function without having 
been invited. 

Mr. Mitchell, welcome to reality! 
People have stereotypes, all people. 
Your comment "You aren't really 
black. You don't act like other black 
people" should be understood; think 
about it — you are in Scholars' Col- 

lege aren't you? Society has given a 
stereotype to black people, to name 
one of the many groups. How to 
change a stereotype? Improve the 
image to the people who place that 
stereotype. And that, my friend will 
not happen in the near future. 

And to comment on "I can be a lot 
of things...;" well, fine and dandy, be 
everything that you can be and be the 
best at it. However, it sounds as if you 
are ashamed of being black, although 
you say that you are proud of it If you 
are truly proud of it and are good at 
whatever you are trying to accom- 
plish, then it will not matter. It seems 
that you are letting your color cloud 
your vision and get in the way of your 

Now to go on to the second letter 
by Mr. Mitchell. Thank you for apolo- 
gizing to the organizations that you 
insulted. I will agree that education is 
the best way to change all of that, but 
I disagree that the talk show was a 
small but significant part. I find it 
ironic that the talk show was sched- 

uled in order to find ways to break 
down racism, when at the same time 
and day, the Mr. Homecoming/Tal- 
ent Show reinforced the feelings of 
racism on this campus (and that whole 
incident only brings up more contro- 
versy, but refer to Ms. Weego' s letter 
for the rude display of conduct per- 
formed by the — how did you put it 
Mr. Mitchell?— "blacks."). 

Mr. Mitchell, you should take five 
minutes out of your day and try to feel 
what those contestants in the talent 
show felt like when they were trying 
to perform. Wait, take six, instead. 

Now for my comments on the 
letter in this paper by Mr. Reginald 
Williams, BCA President. (For those 
of you who don't know, Mr. Wil- 
liams and Mr. Mitchell were the ones 
who went to Manchester, New 
Hampshire, together and are best 
friends.) Mr. Williams, I haven't 
heard the Japanese, Chinese, Paki- 
stanis, Spanish, Latin Americans, or 
other minorities on this campus crying 
for recognition or equality. Most of 

them, if not all of them have made a 
mark on this campus without whin- 

I think it is great that you want to 
start the BCA, really I do. But to say 
that it was "formed to protect the 
rights and privileges of every minor- 
ity student on campus" is a load of 
crap. Please enlighten me, whatrights 
and privileges have been taken away 
from you on this campus? If this 
organization is "not to separate or 
alienate black and other minority 
students from white students," then 
can we start a White Caucus Associa- 
tion? For that matter, can we have a 
White College Fund, our minds are a 
terrible thing to waste too. 

Mr. Williams, you also stated that 
"out of 489 black students, only 92 
voted. This shows that minorities 
either are not aware or do not care." I 
would circle "do not care." Gee, 818 
other people did vote, and did know 
about it 

And, last but most certainly not 
least, your statistics of what minori- 

ties are and aren't on certain organi- 
zations, can be put you-know- where. 
On the Homecoming Court ballot 
there was one handicapped student, 
one Asian, and one black women. On 
State Fair Court there were five black 
women. They had the same chance as 
the other girls on the ballot to make 
the court. After all, three organiza- 
tions had to nominate them to even 
get on the ballot. They have some 
involvement somewhere, but where 
were those to help get them on the 
court? . 

I feel better that I have said my 
piece, and i am sure that I too will 
receive some feedback on my com- 
ments, but they too are feelings that 
represent the opinion of many.

to participate in my university's 
homecoming, specifically the 
"Homecoming Hunnies Pageant and 
Talent Show." After Northwestern's 
new Mr. Homecoming was crowned, 
the group I was sitting with moved to 
the front of the audience to get a 
better view of the various talents our 
school had to offer. 

The first contestants were Butch 
Tinker and Will James of Theta Chi 
Fraternity. Albeit, I don't listen to 
country music as a rule but I was 
impressed by the incredible voice 
Butch possesses, as well as the musi- 
cal talent both young men displayed 
on acoustic guitar. At least, I thought 
I liked what I could hear of the per- 
formance. I mean, how could anyone 
hear a soft- voiced country song over 
loud talking and booing? 

A group of individuals sitting and 
standing in the back of the audito- 
rium, apparently not Hank Williams, 
Jr. fans, found everything else to do 
besides sitting and listening. 

I don't quite understand the whole 
thing. After living in this state for 
over 20 years, I have learned that 

Louisiana is probably the most versa- 
tile state in the whole country. We 
have cultures of country and western, 
Cajun and Creole, liberal and radical, 
rich and poor, southern and northern, 
New Orleans and the rest of the state, 
as well as a few runoff groups of 

I consider myself an open minded 
person and I believe part of that is due 
to this variety of cultures to which I 
have been subjected. I know it's 
wrong to assume that others in the 
state share this same open-minded- 
ness, because obviously this rowdy 
crowd in the back of the Student 
Union Ballroom last Tuesday night 
couldn't face listening to anything 
other than the other than the talents of 
their own cultural upbringing. 

This was made even plainer to me 
as I observed which particular acts 
throughout the show were booed and 
hissed and which were given this 
group's full attention. I hate to say 
this particular incident was a product 
of racism because these rowdy indi- 
viduals were black, especially after 
such eye-opening arguments for the 
extinction of racism on this campus 
were presented by Derek Mitchell in 
the last two issues of the Current 
Sauce. I personally would not con- 

demn a whole race but rather chalk it 
up to a massive case of bad manners. 

In its own way Justice was served. 
Butch and Will were allowed to re- 
perform their song and consequently 
won the talent show. 

Now that the incident is done and 
forgotten, let me now go on to say 
that I am not ashamed of my univer- 
sity or state. I am proud of the people, 
talents and culture that we possess. I 
am, however, ashamed of the stu- 
dents at this school who are so cultur- 
ally stilted that anything that passes 
beyond their norm makes them, in 
this case, produce mass stupidity. 
Perhaps this problem can never be 
solved. Maybe the school should offer 
a course on Louisiana music and 
cultures or make it part of orienta- 

Derek Mitchell asked everyone to 
take five minutes out of his day to 
think about what it would be like to 
he black. I ask everyone to take out 
1 minutes and imagine what it would 
be like to be black, white, Cajun, 
Creole, a "city slicker," a southerner 
or northerner. I could go on. 

Like the United States itself, 
Louisiana is a melting pot of indi- 
viduals. It's not necessarily a ques- 
tion of racism but a situation where 

people do not understand people. 

It makes me sad to say that until 
we do understand each other there 
will be no end to racism, commu- 
nism, fascism or any kind of "ism." I 
for one do not believe in "isms" and 
I hope that everyone else who reads 
this letter can learn do the same.

will be assisted by Northwestern 's 
Ranger Challenge Team, the Demon 
Rangers led by Cadet Maj. Johnny 
Means of Leesville. 

While in the field, the JROTC 
cadets will participate in intensive 
training sessions which will include 
snake, insect and plant identification 
using live specimens and an expert 
instructor from Fort Polk; survival 

meal cooking techniques where at 
the end of the training day on Satur- 
day, each JROTC cadet will prepare 
and cook their own survival meal of 
chicken, potatoes, carrots, onions and 
other ingredients boiled in a #10 can 
over a fire pit; camouflage of self and 
equipment and detection of camou- 
flage targets in the woods; first aid; 
land navigation; and knot tying along 
with tne building of rope bridges to 
cross water obstacles. The main 
purpose, though, is to provide fun yet

going to Eben Cook, a sophomore 
from Alexandria. 

The other contestants were Chad 
Berry, Oscar George, Buddy Hayes, 
Brent Johnson, H. Scott Jolley, Chad

Shane Smith. 

While the scores were being tal- 
lied, Robin Thibodeaux, SAB secre-

First place and a prize of $ 1 00 was 
awarded to Will James and Butch 
Tinker representing Theta Chi, with 
their rendition of "Don't Close Your 
Eyes" and "If Tomorrow Never 
Comes." Upon receiving his award,

went to Julie Jarvis for her stirring

Lakita Brown, who sang "Home " 
Tri-Sigma, who performed a stomp; 
Julie Jarvis; Frank Rosamond sang

Upon my return to Shreveport 
about 21 days later, I realize that I 
will have to return to North Carolina 
again on or around February 23 . Thi s 

costs another $425. Well, I go home 
for Mardi Gras and return just in time 
to leave again for spring break. Spring 
break is over, and 46 days later so is 
the semester. 

The total amount of money I spend 
per academic year is $2,125. My tui- 
tion costs approximately $3,000. Just 
the traveling alone drains my finances . 
Yet, there are other students who pay 
more than this for rooms and hotels. 

Don't think that this is the first 
time that this has come to the surface, 
because it is not. The assistant dorm 
administrator during the fall 1988 
semester took a petition around for 
all students who were affected by the 
inconvenient closings of the dorm in 
Shreveport. Needless to say, we had 
over half the students sign the paper. 
Yet nothing came about. Mr. Boutte, 
director of housing administration, 
said that the dorm would be closing 
and there was nothing we could do 
about. Hey, just because we are not 
up there in your immediate vicinity 
NSU -Natchitoches, we do exist and 
would like some feedback to this 

Not once did Mr. Boutte come to 
the Shreveport campus and explain 
why the dorm would close. He didn't 
even send correspondence. He knew 
of our stresses and that there were a 
large number of people who had no 
place to go. He knew the dorm ad- 
ministrator was receiving numerous 
complaints. He knew her hands were 
tied because she had to follow orders 
given to her by her superiors. He 
knew that we had problems and ques- 
tions. Yet, he never came to see what 
we could work out, if anything. His 
actions don't say much of the higher 
administrationatNSU.Hello?Is there

Campus-wide blood drive set for Oct. 9-12 

Staff Writer 

A blood drive will be held Octo- 
ber 9-12 in the NSU Student Union 

The blood drive is organized by 
Carl Henry, the SAB director, and 
will be sponsored by the Louisiana 
Blood Center. Students and faculty 
are asked to give blood from 9:00 am 
to 4:00 pm, provided that they weigh 

more than 1 10 pounds and have not 
taken antibiotics one week prior to 
their donation. 

"Giving a pint of blood entitles 
yourself, your immediate family, and 
your grandparents to a reduction in 
the cost of any blood needed for one 
year," said Monique Prevost of the 
Louisiana Blood Center. 

"The donated blood is taken to the 
Blood Center and is processed. It is 

tested for Hepatitis, HIV, HTLV-I, 
and various other signs of blood dis- 
ease. It is then separated into plasma 
, red blood cells, and platelets. These 
three components can be used to treat 
many different diseases and acci- 
dents," explained Prevost. 

There is a common misconcep- 
tion about the risk of contracting 
AIDS from giving blood. Prevost said, 
"There are no documented cases of 

AIDS anywhere from a person do- 
nating blood. Ever." 

The Louisiana Blood Center ad- 
vises anyone who is going to give 
blood to eat a good meal and get a full 
nights sleep. They also advise to wait 
eight weeks to give blood again, and 
to avoid strenuous activities. Giving 
blood literally takes something out of 
you, but what is taken out of you may 
save someone's life.

declaw Eagles, 30-7 


power on the ground was the name 
,f the game this past Saturday as 
Northwestern State upped their rec- 
ord to 4-2, 3-0 and became the 13th- 
pnlced team in the nation by running 
Ljl over the previously 4th-ranked 
University of North Texas Eagles in 
SU's 30-7 victory in the rain. 
For Northwestern, it was their tenth 
braight victory both at home and in 
ine Southland Conference, the latter 
Ijeing the longest in the conference in 
the 1980's. It meant an embarrassing 
■ J j.1 start in conference and a drop to 
gl rixteenth in the country for the team 
wedicted by many area sportswriters 
3958(0 win ^ Soutn land. 




It was Northwestern's best offen- 
sive output of the season, running up 
521 yards rushing (a conference sea- 
son high) and 433 yards total against 
a team that had previously allowed 
pnly 88 yards rushing per game this 
season and rain that helped them lose 
two of five fumbles. Scott Stoker 
compiled 62 of those rushing yards, 

while passing for 1 12 more and one 

The Demon defense also put on 
quite a show, allowing the Eagles 
only 18 yards on the ground and 148 
yards total. It was the best defensive 
showing by NSU for almost five 
years. Leading the squad was safety 
Steve Compton with five tackles and 
a 94-yard interception return for a 
touchdown, gaining him 'Defensive 
Player of the Week' honors from 
both the SLC and the Sports Net- 
work. Other defensive standouts 
included Andre Carron with 12 tack- 
les, end GregNecaise with 1 1 tackles 
and 4 1/2 sacks, and interceptions by 
Adrian Hardy and J J. Eldridge. 

For the first time in four games, 
the Demons didn' t score on their first 
drive, instead giving up a blocked 
punt that put the Eagles on the NSU 
25. But two plays later, Steve Comp- 
ton intercepted UNT's Scott Davis 
and returned it 94 yards for the score. 

The Demons scored twice in the 
second quarter to make it 21-0. The 
first was a 2-yard run by fullback 
Pete Ellis to cap an 87-yard drive. 

Two drives later, Scott Stoker com- 
pleted a 4-yard scoring pass to fresh- 
man quarterback Brad Brown, who 
was lined up at tailback. 

The third quarter was scoreless, 
being highlighted by J.J. Eldridge's 
interception and Chris Hamler's 
missed 37-yard field goal. It was the 
first time Hamler had missed under 
40 yards this year. 

The show started again in the 
fourth quarter when Donny Ford burst 
across the goal from the 14, followed 
by Hamler's first missed extra point 
of the season. 

The Eagles were the next to put 
points on the board, with senior full- 
back Darin Collins bulling his way 
across from the two to make the score 

The Demons weren ' t yet finished. 
With 1:07 left in the game, Chris 
Hamler redeemed himself with a 28- 
yard field goal to finish the scoring 
for the night. 

This week, the Demons are idle. 
Next week, they will travel to Inde- 
pendence Stadium for the State Fair 
contest against Northeast La.

Life is definitely full of ups and 
downs, and this season, the downs 
%eem to come in groups for the NSU 
Lady Demons. This past week saw 
the Lady Demons split two matches 
to extend their record to 5-5. 
Last Tuesday, the Lady Demons 
iw victory at home against Gram- 
iling, 15-13, 15-8, 15-0. They were 
led by seniors Annie Bloxson with 1 1 
kills for a .320 kill ratio and Sonja 
blsen with 8 kills for a .533 kill ratio, 
14 digs, 2 service aces, 2 solo blocks, 
and a block assist. 
The following night brought the

Lady Demons down in defeat at 
Northeastern 6-15, 7-15, 3-15. An- 
nie Bloxson provided the night's one

Thursday saw more downs for 
NSU, as three more players joined 
Claire Gilmartin on the bench with 
mononucleosis. Renita Ellis, Ladine 
Thomas and Amy Haslitt were all 
declared unfit for play, and will miss 
at least the next match. There is no 
word on when any of them will be

"We are in bad shape," said Coach

what's to come.

Bundrick will introduce the Demon 
hoopsters at midnight. Then the team 
will do a little dunking and hold a 
brief scrimmage before the musical 
entertainment resumes. 

"Basketball is a sport where fan 
support is a major factor," commented 
Coach Bell. "With a dozen new 
players we're trying to build an excit- 
ing program." 

"We're trying to create some cra- 
ziness with Midnight Madness and 
get the students involved and en- 
thusedaboutour basketball program."

helps make the evening possible.

'N' Club welcomes six new members 

Sports Writer 

In the midst of last weekend's 
homecoming activities, Northwest- 
ern State's Graduate 'N' Club Hall of 
Fame enshrined six new members. 

The class includes football greats 
Ross Gwinn, Kenny Hrapman, Jack 
Huckaby, Al Phillips and basketball 
standouts Gene Wright and all-time 
scoring leader Billy Reynolds. 

Reynolds, nicknamed "Billy the 
Kid," averaged 18.8 points in his 
107-game career from 1973-77, fin- 
ishing with 2,009 points. He holds 
the single-season scoring record with 
686 points in 1976-77 and is second 
on the Demon's all-time rebounding 
list with 1,150 boards. 

The 6-6 Calhoun native was twice 
an All-Louisiana pick and was cho- 
sen All-South Independent in 1976- 
77, when he was also named NSU's 
outstanding athlete. 

Wright tallied more than 1,000 
career points and collected three all- 
conference honors and was an honor- 
able mention All-American in 1960- 
61. He lettered from 1958-62 and 
was the leading scorer for the Gulf- 
South Conference champions in 

Ross Gwinn, a Natchitoches na- 
tive, was a member of the undefeated 
football team of 1966. The tackle 
garnished All-GSC honors in '65 and 
'66 and played professionally with 
the Baltimore Colts in 1967, the New 

Orleans Saints from '68 to '70 and 
the Edmonton Eskimos of the Cana- 
dian Football League in 1972. 

Hrapmann was a four-year starter 
from 1968-71 at defensive back. He 
received all-conference honors after 
his freshman campaign and was voted 
most valuable player and made a 
permanent team captain in '71. His 
17 career interceptions rank second 
on the all-time list 

Huckaby earned four letters at 
NSU from 1947-50 despite never 
mark including a perfect 9-0 record 
in '66. He ranks fifth in career re- 
ceiving yardage with 1,484 yards 
and is seventh in career receptions 

with 77. In 1968 he had 10 TD 
receptions and set a school record 
with 35 catches for 642 yards. Phil- 
lips still holds the NSU record for 
best single- season kickoff return 
average (27.9) in 1970. 

The inductions bring the total Hall 
of Fame membership to 101 ex- 
Demon and Lady Demon greats, 
playing high school bail, tie 
singlehandedly won the 1950 home- 
coming game by blocking a punt for 
a touchdown. The Hall Summitt 
resident was honorable mention All- 
GSC as a sophomore and first-team

give speeches during the commemo- 
ration and unveiling of the map. 

Friday night's ceremonies will 
conclude with a water parade pro- 
ceeded by sweep boats with lighted 
torches, followed by nine barges, each 
decorated to represent a different era 
in the 275-year history of the city of 
Natchitoches. 275 paper boats hold-

on during the ceremony making the 
"City of Lights" shine brighter than

Participation of Natchitoches area 
schools in the St. Denis Jubilee has" 
resulted in various features including 
a coloring book drawn up by a stu- 
dent of the Louisiana School. The 
coloring book, featuring historical 
pictures of Natchitoches and St. 
Denis, has been distributed to Natchi- 
toches Parish children in kindergar- 
ten through third grade. 

Rick Harrington, co-chairman of 
the St. Denis Jubilee, says that NSU 
has been very supportive of the pro- 
gram and that many of the faculty and 
students have participated in the 
various events. "We are very grate- 
ful. It would not have been as suc- 
cessful without the support of North- 
western," said Harrington. 

Sandi Sherrill 


Staff Writer 

A lot of people look at the volley- 
ball court and expect to see six-foot- 
ers all crowding the net. But when 
they look at Northwestern, one of the 
best all-around players they see is 
NSU's 5'4 setting star, sophomore 
Sandi Sherrill. 

Just because she sets instead of 
hits doesn't make Sandi any less 
important to the team. According to 
Coach Rickey 
the setter on a 
team is very 
similar to the 
quarterback in 
football in that 
she controls 
the action on 
the court. It is 
the setter that reads the opposing 
defense so as to set the ball to her 
team's strengths and the opponent's 
weaknesses. This is one thing that 
Sandi does well. 

"Sandi reads well, and has good 
knowledge," said McCalister of 
Sherrill. During her high school 
career at Grand Prairie, Tx, Sandi 
twice set her school's record for 
number of assists, and was named 
district MVP her senior year. 

This year, Sandi has already sur- 
passed the mark that made her sec- 
ond on the squad in assists, sporting 
284 on the season. She leads the team 
with 21 service aces, also breaking 
her mark from last season. And she 
has proved herself against the six- 
footers with the first solo block of her 
college career against Grambling last 

The Lady Demons and Sandi will 
travel to Stephen F. Austin to open 
the conference Thursday, and return 
home against McNeese Saturday.

Staff Writer 

October 15-21 has been officially 
proclaimed "Alcohol Awareness 
Week" on the Northwestern campus. 
Activities on the campus will coin- 
cide with similar student efforts na- 
tionwide during National Collegiate 
Alcohol Awareness Week. These 
events supported by faculty and ad- 
ministration stress education and the 
individual's ultimate responsibility 
in making well informed, respon- 

sible decisions. Now in its sixth year, 
the national campaign is sponsored 
by the Inter- Association Task Force 
on Alcohol and Other Substance 
Abuse Issues, which represents stu- 
dent affairs professionals across the 

• "An important partnership can be 
formed between students, faculty, 
administration and the community to 
encourage students to make respon- 
sible decisions regarding alcohol," 
said Eliza Brittain, member of the 

Louisiana Peer Leaders Coalition. 
"President Robert Alost's support of 
'Alcohol Awareness Week' at NSU 
has made development of the week's 
activities possible. We would also 
like to thank Kathy Walker and Br- 
idget Bella in all their support and 
help with the Peer Leaders Coali- 

The agenda for the week is as 
follows: On Tuesday, October 16, 
there will be a seminar on "Peer 
Pressure" by Dr. John Simoneaux, 

director of River North Counseling 
Service, in room 321 Student Union; 
on Wednesday, October 17, Dewayne 
Book, Chemical Dependency Coun- 
selor from Charter Forest Hospital 
will hold a lecture on "Facts About 
Alcohol" in room 321 of the Union; 
and on Thursday, October 18, an 
intoxilator demonstration will be held 
in the lobby of the Student Union 
from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.and Book 
will discuss "The Disease of Alco- 
hol" in room 321 of the Union. An 
information table will be set up in the 
Student Union Lobby from 10 a.m. 
until 4:30 p.m. each day. 

In addition to these activities, there 
will be a wrecked truck (involved in 
an alcohol-related accident) displayed 
in front of the Student Union for the 
entire week. There will also be a 
Student Poster Competition with a

Production of 'Steel Magnolias' fantastic 

Managing Editor 

Most of Natchitoches is anxiously 
awaiting the release of the movie 
version of Steel Magnolias. How- 
ever, the local theatrical debut of 
Bobby Harling' s acclaimed play here 
at Northwestern has brought just as 
much excitement to the town. 

The production, which ran from 
October 9 through October 17 in the 
A. A. Fredericks Fine Arts Audito- 
rium, was well-received by both the 
community and the students. Each 
actress played her role with convic- 
tion and with style. 


"Steel Magnolias" 

The October 12 performance, 
viewed by this reporter, was excep- 
tionally well-done, although there 
were a few flaws at first. One of the 
main problems was late seating which 
delayed the play by thirty minutes. 
Another disruption, which upset the 
audience as well as the cast, was the 
presence of small children. There 
were a few vacant seats scattered 
about the theater and a child moved 
from chair to chair, distracting the 
persons watching the play. Another 
crawled underneath the chairs placed 
on the edge of the stage and watched 
the performance with half her body 
protruding out onto the stage itself. 
These problems, while minor, should 
have been handled quickly to prevent 
further distractions. 

Aside from that, the play was 
thoroughly enjoyable. The cast 
worked together extremely well, 
showcasing the excellent material 
with which Harling has provided 
them. There were a few rough spots, 
especially in the beginning, but these 
were compensated for as the produc- 
tion continued smoothly. 

As Steel Magnolias opens, the 
audience meets Melissa Trumble as 
Truvy, the owner of a local beauty 
shop. Truvy is a brassy but loving 
woman who is training Annelle (Lola 
Davis) in the art of hair-styling. The 
saucy Trumble has some choice lines 
in the play and delivers them with an 
sweetly acidic tone. Her sarcasm is 
mixed with the proper amount of 
matronly kindness that fits the char- 
acter perfectly. She is somewhat 
harsh at first, but quickly tones down 
and performs wonderfully. 

Annelle is new to the beauty snop 
and displays that by her eagerness to 
fit in. At first, Davis' portrayal is

University Players' production of Steel Magnolias. 

extremely naive and nervous which 
is, in the beginning, bothersome. But 
as the play progresses, Annelle (and 
Davis' rendition) changes dramati- 
cally; both the actress and the charac- 
ter grow and mature, resulting in an 
enjoyable performance from Davis. 
She brings a witty charm to Annelle 
without making the character too ir- 
ritatingly country, as has been done 
in other productions of the play. 

Helen Farrar as Clairee, the wife 
of the late mayor of Chinquapin, is an 
excellent choice of casting. Farrar's 
dry, matter-of-fact tone cleverly dis- 
guises the character' s sharp mind and 
not-so-gentle humor which enlivens 
almost every situation. She is obvi- 
ously enjoying the part and makes 
the most of her outrageous lines. 

By far the most comedic part aside 
from Clairee is Ouiser, played by 
Leah McGee. From the moment 
Ouiser walks through Truvy's door, 
the play seems to perk up. With her 
almost hilariously rude lines, perfect 
accent, and fantastic delivery, McGee 
steals the show. Hers is one of the 
best performances: she is able to 
make the audience laugh about al- 
most anything, and not just by recit- 
ing her lines. 

While Farrar and McGee have the 
funniest roles, the most dramatic 
belong to Kelly Graham as M'Lynn 
and Patty Breckenridge as Shelby. 
Breckenridge has the main role and 
delivers a wonderful performance. 

Aside from McGee's Ouiser, hers 
was the most believable portrayal — 
she brings a honest depth to the part 
and does more than simply read the 
script. Breckenridge does have a few 
rough spots; some of her comedic 
lines seem canned, but she makes up 
for that with her dramatic scenes 
played with conviction. 

The most difficult role, other than 
Shelby's.isthatofM'Lynn. Graham 
dealt perfectly with the anguish that 

the character eoes through. She has 
somefunnyparis.buther real strength 
comes out when she conveys a range 
of emotions. Graham's best per- 
formance is in the final scene where 
she grieves over Shelby; her power- 
ful and touching speech moved many 

in the audience to tears. Aside from 
a few flubbed lines at the beginning 
of the show, Graham's portrayal was

Constructive dialogue needed to solve differenc 

Dear Editor, 

The extensive coverage that Cur- 
rent Sauce has been devoting to the 
creation of the Black Caucus and the 
widely varying responses it has re- 
ceived point up the need for con- 
structivedialogue between all groups 
on NSU' s campus. Michelle Weego's 
letter concluding that our goal should 
be to understand each other was ex- 
tremely helpful, and the newspaper's 
editorial on the subject reminded us 
that individuals are individuals be- 
fore they are representatives of this 
or that pigmentation, and it is as indi- 
viduals that they should be judged. 

It is regrettable, however, that the 
letter published under the headline 
"Does Black Caucus Promote Re- 
verse Racism?" written by someone 
unwilling to claim his or her own 
words, probably does, as the author 
claimed, "represent the opinion of 
many." The writer has apparently 

failed to listen to what Derek Mitch- 
ell and the BCA hope to accomplish, 
and he has certainly not added any- 
thing of value to the debate. 

There are many things wrong with 
the writer's letter, ranging from over- 
use of trite colloquialisms to poor 
sentence structure and lame attempts 
at humor. But, of course, the most 
glaring mistakes in the letter stem 
from the author's attempts to cloak 
his bigotry in the somewhat "refined" 
terminology of the New Racist. 

He writes, "People have stere- 
otypes, all people. . . How to change 
a stereotype? Improve the image to 
First, an admission that society is 
imperfect is no excuse not to try to fix

Greeks may solve

Dear Editor, 

There seems to be some tension 
around campus concerning the "Black 
Caucus" and rights of minority stu- 
dents. There does not seem to be any 
doubt that Northwestern students 
should get involved, but this problem 
is not restricted to only blacks — 
whites aren ' t involved either. If you 
look at who is the most involved with 
SGA and SAB most of them are in 
either fraternities or sororities. 

The reason that blacks do get 
involved lies more in the fraternity 
.system. The smoker fraternities 
j conduct themselves in a manner that 
would make any self-respecting col- 
lege student ashamed to be a part of 
the organization. Walking in line, 
being humiliated in public, paddled, 
and branded (only two of them brand) 
does not exactly encourage the best 
of men to go Greek. The smoker fra- 
ternities should straighten their act 
up, because they are losing good men 
who, with the help of the Greek 
organizations, could achieve so much 
more. Why do they not go Greek? 
Possibly because they entered col- 
lege with a spirit of self- worth and a 

willingness to achieve excellence and 
do not wish to be treated like dogs. 

The total voter turn-out was ter- 
rible in comparison to how much it 
should be. We have almost 8,000 
students here at Northwestern (Shre- 
veport campus included). The num- 
ber of people who voted in the SGA 
elections was around 800. Only 10% 
of the overall student population even 
bothered to vote. When we are told 
that blacks are not involved, and 98 
voted, that really is not so bad consid- 
ering the 10% is considered really 
good. It might even be a record, and 
the numbers we have working with 
SAB are too few to put in a 
Volkswagen. Neither the blacks nor 
the whites are getting involved. If the ■ 
Black Caucus and Pan-Hellenic stu- 
dents would like to do something 
about the problem with minorities 
getting involved, try working through 
the fraternities first. Start making 
them more attractive to black stu- 
dents and you will see a sharp rise in 
minority involvement If there was 
not a Greek system on this campus 
we could have the majority of our 
elections by a show of hands in the 
front lobby of Boozman Hall. 

Name Withheld 

Everyone is equal 

Dear Editor, 

All things must change in time. 
The time has come for unity, Knowl- 
edge and consideration. How many 
people do you pass in a day without 
speaking to them for one reason or 
another? How bad does it hurt to say 

There has been much controversy 
concerning the Black Caucus Asso- 
ciation and our purpose. We are a 
group of students, not minorities, who 
would like a fair chance at equality 
for everyone. I once read a passage 
by R.M. Maclver which stated, 
"Cultural diversity has not been rec- 
ognized, understood, accepted or 
implemented by the majority. Al- 
though there has been much lip-serv- 

ice to the tradition that all peoples 
share equally in the rights of citizen- 
ship, we know that discrimination 
and prejudice directed toward one 
group or another is widespread. The 
march of world events, together with 
the insistent demands of minority 
groups with in our midst, now require 
reappraisal of our diversity and the 
development of new attitudes in re- 
gard to it" 

The Black Caucus Association is 
not in search of a struggle for terri- 
tory. We are asking everyone to keep 
in mind that man may be formed in all 
shapes, colors, and sizes; but man 
was and still is created equal. Think 
about it.

the stereotype to educate themselves. 
Like striving to make the world a 
better place, this requires some ef- 
fort Perhaps the writer is lazy, as 
well as bigoted. 

The writer's "explanation" of 
others' comments to Mitchell, which 
the writer incorrectly identified as 
Mitchell's own comments, that he 
wasn 't "really black" because he' s in 
Scholars' College requires some 
translation. Because you're black, no 
one expects you to be intelligent. 
Mitchell is certainly aware that that's 
what some of his white friends im- 
plied by their comments, and when 
he questions them he is encouraging 
them to recognize their ignorance for 

what it is. Mitchell wants people to 
begin to appreciate that an intelligent 
black is not an extraordinary thing. 

The anonymous letter writer says 
that the rude behavior exhibited by 
some of the black audience members 
at the homecoming talent show "re- 
inforced the feelings of racism on 
this campus." This statement, unfor- 
tunately true because racism is built 
on just this sort of ridiculous scaf- 
folding, shows the author's willing- 
ness to generalize the actions of indi- 
viduals into an inherent trait of an 
entire group. Miss Weego was on 
target when she wrote that she "would 
not condemn a whole race but rather 
chalk it up to a massive case of bad 


For the BCA to recognize that the 
amount of minority participation on 
campus could be much better and to 
try to amend that situation is not, as 
the writer would have us believe, 
"whining." As the Current Sauce 
editorial stated, "If the BCA is trying 
to see more involvement on campus, 
then only great things can be accom- 
plishedfor Northwestern asawhole." 
Again, choosing someone simply for 
the sake of "representation" is obvi- 
ously a mistake. 

Finally, the author writes, "If this 
organization (the BCA) is not to 

Caucus focuses on black awarenes 

Dear Editor, 

After reading your article where 
you questioned whether the Black 
Caucus promotes reverse racism, a 
deep-rooted anger overcame me. I 
soon began to realize that your opin- 
ions echo those of many other Ameri- 
cans. And I also realized that only 
education and lots of prayer, not 
anger, can remedy the situation. 

The history of the black race is 
marked by what seems to be exag- 
geration, but we need not be ashamed 
of our past. One of the reasons that 
white society has had to falsify or 
ignore Black history was not only to 
discredit blacks, but also to protect 
itself from the awful truth of what it 
has inflicted on millions of them. 
While Americans could not remove 
the determination and integrity that 
lied within the black man, Blacks, 
who suffered much toil, faithfully 
strove to learn. For they knew, 

through education came internal free- 
dom. And to your dismay, we have 
not forgotten this crucial fact. 

"Improve the image to the people 
who place that stereotype," was the 
advice you gave to Derek Mitchell. 
Well, you represent the people who 
place the stereotype, so maybe you 
need to open your eyes and improve 
your image. I, too, am a Scholars 
College student and would like you 
to know that intelligent black people 
are not scarce. We are well repre- 
sented in every aspect of American 
life. Negro athletes now dominate 
major professional sports, and Negro 
artists continue to excel in music and 
entertainment Politically, the Negro 
has made his appearance in the high- 
est positions of government. And 
academically, we have proven our 
strength. We hold positions as writ- 
ers, scientists, educators, and schol- 
ars, paving the way for the future of 

our people. 

We did not whine our way here. 
We fought hard and struggled hard. 
We did not cry then. Why do you 
think we are crying now? Our main 
purpose as a caucus is to bond to- 
gether our forces and make blacks 
aware that the system of prejudice is 
still in existence and is better organ- 
ized than ever. The Black Caucus 
wants to ensure that all black stu- 
dents gain or obtain an awareness of 
their history, and learn to be strong 
enough to overcome the obstacles 
presented by you, the white caucus. 

And to briefly entertain your com- 
ment about the "white caucus," it has 
already been started — right when 
your forefathers institutionalized slav- 
ery and prejudice. At one point in 
your article, you support the Black 
Caucus. But then you call the very 
ideals we are built upon, "crap." This 
is only one example of the confusion

Black Caucus brings issues to ligh 

Dear Editor: 

I am responding to the letter printed 
last week which represented "the 
opinion of many," and yet was un- 
signed. If there's anyone who hasn't 
figured it out, "Name Withheld" is 
someone on the Current Sauce staff, 
or he or she would not have been able 
to respond to the letter from Reginald 
Williams or to Michelle Weego's 
article, since they appear in the same 

edition. This presents a nasty impli- 
cation, particularly if "N. W." is in the 
higherranks of the editorship. It seems 
to show that the Current Sauce is 
happier writing about who's stand- 
ing up at football games than genuine 

Derek Mitchell's letters and the 
Black Caucus have brought an im- 
portant matter back into discussion 
on campus. This is not a treat Name, 
it's a positive change. People may 
actually reconsider their own beliefs. 
That's what it's all about, you know. 
The black stereotype exists, and 
probably will for a long time, I'll 
agree. However, when a well-spoken 
man like Derek Mitchell is told, "You 
aren'treally black," he is notallowed 

to improve the speaker's personal 
image of the race. That is unfair. If 
people must have stereotypes in their 
heads, they should be based on their 
own experiences, not some ancient 

I also think "Name Withheld" mis- 
understands Black Caucus which is 
an unfortunate name because it seems 
to make people like N.W. angry all 
by itself. As far as I can tell, this or- 
ganization exists to encourage mi- 
nority students, not just black stu- 
dents, to be more active in camDus 
affairs. Perhaps minority students "do 
not care" because they "are notaware" 
of the influence they can have in elec- 
tions. Once again, it's a matter of 
individuals changing their own minds, 
not of coercion. This is not a threat to 
your well-being, Mr/Ms. Withheld. 
It is a promise for someone else's. 

At a university like NSU, most of 

the students are young and 
part of the "real world." They a 
should be, re-evaluating their 
with higher education. This i 
actly the time for organizations 
as Black Caucus and for such 
as is going on now in these 
pages. As we are so often rernii

Black Caucus receives varied suppof 

Dear Current Sauce, 

This is my letter in support of the 
Black Caucus Association. TheBCA 
represents some of the organized 
positive energy on campus. It is 
comprised of people capable of giv- 
ing thoughtful, caring attention to the 
problems of isolation and prejudice 
at NSU. Happily, Derek Mitchell's 
letters have been read by people who 
want to help. 

Mr. Mitchell has described troub- 
les that many minorities face. A lot 

of people share with his experience 
and their sharing is the basis for friend- 
ship and understanding. But such 
good things are sorely damaged when 
bias still operates. This is the unfor- 
tunate case with many who consider 
themselves unprejudiced. 

In his letter dated October 3, Todd 
Dupree speaks of having felt the 
"sting" of prejudice. He urges that 
we who have homes foster awareness 
in them. He would also be proud to 
call Derek Mitchell his friend. But 

his understanding of how human 
beings choose to relate follows a 
limiting rule: "I disagree with whites 
dating blacks," he says. If we ask 
what exactly is the belief behind such 
a statement, we see that Mr. Dupree 
does not recognize prej udice for what 
it is. He should wonder if Derek 
Mitchell could stand to hear that kind 
of statement from a "friend." He 
should consider what he thinks is 
threatening about integrated dating. 
He should be prepared to answer the 

question, what by the way, und« 
Gaze of God is a person born of^ 
and white parents supposed to 
his scheme? In the concluding 
ment of his letter, Mr. Dupree & 
how imagines that, "prejudice 
never conquer the true person in ' 
us." I want to believe in the 
querable "true persons" that

If ee the desperation and defeat of

ve s under the awful disapproval of

jv) [hen let him consider what it 

"^ans to be true. 

-fodd Dupree's problem with in- 
led dating is an example of die 
idiced personal thinking that 
ids. It is nothing short of op- 
,ive. And to describe oppression 

from personal experience, as Derek 
Mitchell has, is no mere complaint. It 
is hope for awareness of something 
that seriously affects us all and it is a 
call for action on a community level. 

Derek Mitchell, Reginald Wil- 
liams, and the BCA rightly point out 
the under-representation of blacks as 
a glaring symptom of our 
community's racial problem. Derek 
Mitchell has also done right to pub- 
licly observe something as obvious 
as our highly segregated fraternities 
and sororities. Itwasright to publicly 
ask the Greeks some relevant ques- 
tions not the least of which is, "why?" 
He should confidently expect some 
public, Greek endorsed replies. 

So far, however, the response has 
contained mostly squeamish snivel- 
ing, not to mention barbarous hostil- 
ity. Todd Dupree at least recognized 
a request for help and understood its 
principle meaning. But this recent 
talk of "more involvement on cam- 
pus" as some kind of answer to racial 
awareness thoughtlessly clouds the 
issue. If the general decrepitude of 
overall student participation is also in 
some degree the symptom of a racial 
problem as the BCA suspects, we 
may finally dimly sight our "ultimate 
goal of full campus participation". 
But there must be no mistaking or 
covering up the primary goal of the 
BCA: to effectively treat a racial 

problem. It is true that the goal for 
"full campus participation" has got- 
ten sticky in the long suffering hands 
of the organizations who propose to 
unify our spirit by providing activi- 
ties, providing forums for communi- 
cation, and running for elections. I 
join the Sauce in welcoming the BCA 
to the task force. But shall wequibble 
about the BCA's name, too? For 
nearly 400 years, under violent pres- 
sure of degradation, American de- 
scendants of Africans have had ready- 
made identities shackled to the color 
of their skin. Is it so bewildering that 
blacks have a common cause under 
the symbol of that skin? Is it any 
wonder that identity still has a lot to 

do with skin these days? Derek 
Mitchell andReginald Williams have 
notknown minority suffering because 
they are a minority, but because they 
are black. 

Furthermore, it is downright dis- 
couraging when people in leadership 
positions are capable of making re- 
volting analogies between basketball 
and student government, as the Cur- 
rent Sauce has in the October 10 
issue. One is tempted to just give up, 
representation and participation be 
damned. I hope the people who 
committed the error (all the greater 
for passing it as journalism) will re- 
think the analogy for themselves and 
realize on their own what the hell 

went wrong. 

Among the BCA's tasks will cer- 
tainly be to encourage minority try- 
outs for all kinds of teams, as it were, 
in the interest of equal representa- 
tion. They will want to examine just 
how teams are picked around here, 
too (it probably won't be a matter of 
free-throw averages). The Black 
Caucus Association knows that it is 
very relevant whether someone is 
white or black or male or female. Our 
society has always had it that way. 
And bias is that specific. We should 
not hope, but insist, that teams are 
picked with the minority point of 
view as a major criteria.

Purse snatchers on the loose 

Stuff Writer 

Beware of purse- snatchers is the 
latest warning circulating around the 
Northwestern campus. Since the Fall 
semester began, several instances of 
purse-snatching have been reported 
to campus security. Though the 
University Police have received these 
reports, they feel that many more 
instances have not been reported. 

Victims of the purse-snatchings i 
include NSU students and staff 
members. One staff member who 
does not wish to be identified said 
that she was in her office and had 
turned her back for a few seconds 
when, "...somebody came in, 
snatched my purse off the counter 
and ran." 

Campus police say that they have 
not yet received any positive identifi- 
cation of the thieves, except that they 
are two males who operate as part- 
ners in the crimes. Victims are usu- 
ally one female alone or two people 
together, one or both of them female. 
The thieves usually approach the 
victim from behind, one of them at- 
tempting to snatch the purse while 
the other acts as a lookout. Thefts 
have also been reported in classrooms. 

Campus police have been unable 
to take much action on these purse- 
snatchings due to lack of information 
about the crimes. Investigator Doug 
Prescott of the University Police 
department says, "We've got to have 
everybody helping. We need coop- 
eration from students. If they know 
something please come forth and tell 
us. The thieves will be prosecuted to 
the full extent of the law." 

Purse-snatchings have occurred in 
the daytime inside academic build- 

ings on campus and at night outside 
these buildings. Campus police urge 
students and staff members to be- 
ware of the thefts and to be more 
careful by not walking alone at night 
and avoiding especially dark areas. 
Anyone who does not wish to walk 
alone at night may call the NSU po- 
licedepartment (campus phone 543 1) 
and request an escort.

, Jye St. Denis Jubilee ended its year-long 
jelebration commemorating the 275 
anniversary of the founding of Natchi- 
loches. Festivities began Friday at 
|8:30 a.m. when Rick Harrington, co- 
chairman of the St. Denis Jubilee and 
acrowd of over 1 50 people, appeared 
» ABC-TV's "Good Morning, 
America" exclaiming, "From Natchi- 
hes, Louisiana, the oldest city in 
Louisiana Purchase, Good Morn- 

ing, America!" 

At 10:30 a.m. in the Orville J. 
Hanchey Art Gallery, Jerry Huck- 
aby, U.S. Representative from Shre- 
veport District 5, presented U.S. 
Savings Bonds to the first and second 
place winners participating in the St. 
Denis Jubilee Art and Essay Contest. 
Following the awards, Huckaby pre-

In the Recital Hall of the Creative 
and Performing Arts Center at 4 : 30, a 
press conference was held by Gover- 
nors B uddy Roemer of Louisiana and 
Bill Clements of Texas. A reception 
honoring Governors Roemer and 
Clements and the French and Cana-

The festivities journeyed to the 
downtown riverbank for the com- 
memoration of theFleurdeLis Stage. 
NSU senior French major Joel Ebarb 
of Shreveport, portraying St. Denis, 
officially opened the ceremony by 

saying, in French, "Welcome, my 
friends to the City of Natchitoches!" 

Joe Sampite, mayor of Natchito- 
ches, welcomed the many guest who 
flocked to this occasion. Next, Joe 
Sampite introduced Buddy Roemer 
by asking fora new bridge for Natchi- 
toches. With a smile on his face, 
Roemer answered, 'The bridge is in 
the mail, Joe." As Roemer continued 
his speech, he discussed how the 
people of Louisiana could make the 
state florish with pride. "I want to

texas governor speaks at Jubilee 

Staff Writer 

Despite being a witness to an 
lamed robbery in Dallas on Thursday 
might, Texas Gov. Bill Clements ar- 
tived safely in Natchitoches to join 
(Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer at 
the St. Denis Jubilee on Friday. 

Clements, who was patronizing a 
favorite hamburger restaurant when 
the robbery occurred, said he has no 
blans of hiring any more bodyguards 
pt a press conference held Friday in 
conjunction with the Jubilee. 

Clements, accompanied by his 
Wfe, explained that Natchitoches held 

a special place in his heart because 
his mother was born on a plantation 
in the area in 1882. 

Shortly alter he finished his short 
speech, the topic quickly turned to 

When questioned about last 
weekend's election, Roemer said that 
he thought the election "was a suc- 
cess on the part of the taxpayer and 
also for those who spend the 
taxpayer's money." 

in reference to Amendment 1 that 
dealt with highway construction, Ro- 

emer said that he wants the amend- 
ment to have "maximum impact." 
Roemer also said that the quality of 
the highway would play an important 
role. "I want the highways to be the 
best in structure, planning and com- 
position, " said Roemer. " I want our 
highways to be the same as Texas'." 
He said that he would assign a person 
to furnish weekly updates on high- 
way progress. 

Roemer said that he still "has the 
dream for tax reform." 

When asked from the audience to 
give advice to Louisiana for an eco- 

nomic turnaround, Clements said, "I 
may be dumb, but I'm not thatdumb." 
Clements said he believes that 
Louisiana's economy is beginning to 
recover, but, like Texas, the road to 
. recovery is a long and bumpy one. 

"Natchitoches is akey to the state' s 
turnaround. Its pride and history have 
existed for 275 years," said Roemer. 
"Natchitoches has always felt good 
about itself." 

After Roemer said this, Clements 
asked, "Have you ever considered 
moving the capital here?"

Local psychic adviser no plain Jane 

Staff Writer 

According to Ethel Watts Mum- 
ford in her book Hand-Reading To- 
day, "Palmistry can help. Every city 
should have experts ... an analyst by 
mental tests and physical examina- 
tion, checked by a careful reading of 
the hands, would be of inestimable 
value to those desiring to find their 
groove, and make the most of their 
individual abilities." Mrs. Jane is 
just that for Natchitoches. 

Our resident "analyst" though is 
not all that easy to find. For the past 
two weeks I have been trying to find 
her, without luck. On my first try the 
men who were roofing her house 
informed me that the proprietors were 
out and left no word as to where they 
were. After, they offered to read my 
palm. I decided to wail. 

Finally, on Sunday I tried calling 
again, this time with success. On 
Monday, October 16, 1989, 1 had my 
first run-in with the super-natural. 

Upon our arrival, I noticed a nice 
car and an enormous boat under the 
garage that had, in previous visits, 
not been there. Maybe she didn't 
want the roofers to know that psy- 
chics don't ski. 

The entire house was locked as 
tight as Alcatraz. With bars on the 
windows and every door having steel 
frames and bars, even Doug Henning 
would have trouble in this abode of 

higher consciousness. I didn't quite 
know what to expect out of my visit, 
so I brought a friend with me. We 
both wanted to have a "talk" with her, 
but she insisted on having us enter 
separately. When I went in, I was 
more than a little nervous at having 
her lock the door behind me. I was 
received directly at the entrance. This 
room is also used as a laundry room, 
a fact which became painfully obvi- 
ous during the reading when the 
washing machine against the closet 
door kept banging. 

The room was small and I sat with 
my back to the door. To my left were 
statuettes and pictures of Jesus. In 
this home.because these "analysts" 
are usually assumed to be involved 
with the occult, these items seemed 
to be very out of place. The visit was 
truly interesting. With these given 
surroundings, and amidst the sounds 
of yelling children, a barking dog 
with cutesy pink toenails, and a bang- 
ing unbalanced washload, the read- 
ing began. 

She asked me what I would like to 
have and really not knowing any 
other analysis package she might 
provide other than the "$5 Special," 
well-publicized all over the front, I 

opted for that. I was first ordered to 
produce the $5 and hold it; while 
holding it make two desires or wishes; 
tell her one of them; then put the 
money on her bible (the cash register, 
as it were). She asked for my hand 
and proceeded to tell me my past, 
present, and future. I thought it was 
amazing that everything she divined 
from the creases in my hand she did 
simply by first sight and never even 
touched me. I suppose my karma was 
detectable over the spin cycle. 

Everything she told me was gen- 
eral and I contented myself with 
thinking,"what can you expect for 
five dollars?" Because I tried to have 
myself prepared for this session knew 
a few questions to ask, I posed a 
question about my hand. I asked her 
if it is at all significant to have a line 
going all the way across the palm as 
mine does. She told me no, and I left 
a little disappointed in finding out 
that this is not special. Before I 
walked out she told me if I do not to 
tell my wishes, they will come true. 

I waited outside while my friend 
was locked in the house, and I made 
serious considerations as to whether 
I would want to put my fortunes in the 
newspaper. Before a decision was 
reached, my friend emerged, in- 
formed of fortune. 

I had no doubt that he was told the 
same thing I was about telling his 
wishes, so we were reluctant share

The Traffic Appeals Committee 
met this past Wednesday and Thurs- 
day from 1 1:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on 
each day in an effort to answer the 
many questions which have been 
brought up concerning traffic regula- 

The Traffic Appeals Committee 
is made up of a faculty/staff member 
and two students. The student mem- 
bers for the appeals committee are 
appointed by Laura Willis, SGA 
president. Wednesday' s appeals were 
hjfeard by housing staff member Bill 
Sf . Andre and the students were Beth 
Gowland, sophomore; and Leslie 
Blake, freshman. Thursday 'sappeals 

were heard by St. Andre and the two 
f * 

appeal members were Precious Jen- 
kins, junior; and John Williams, 
senior. The staff alternate is Skeeter 
Henry, director of SAB. 

r'They all have a gripe," said St. 
Andre about those who appealed their 
tipkets. "We are not trying to say that 
the students are right or wrong or that 

campus security is right or wrong, we 
are giving the students a fair chance 
to appeal their ticket. B ut, it takes two 
out of three votes to decide whether 
the person appealing the ticket should 
pay or not." 

The vehicle regulations booklet 
for Northwestern State University 
states, "The fact that other vehicles 
are parked with impropriety shall not 
constitute an excuse for parking ille- 

St. Andre said, "There is a lot of 
parking on this campus — the kids 
need to learn to walk a little bit." 

When asked if a student would 
literally run in and out of Natchito- 
ches dorm when the car is parked in 
the front, would the car be towed or 
ticketed, St. Andre said that a lot of 
these questions have been brought up 
in the Traffic and Safety Committee 
meetings, headed by Harold Boutte, 
director of housing. 

"It was brought up at the last 
meeting to return the front of Natchi- 
toches dorm to a 15-minute parking 
area, but the motion failed," said St. 


"Feel free to come by and voice 
your opinion, and we'll be happy to 
work it out. We'll tell you what we 
can and can't do. There have been 
some good comments about the park- 
ing situation on campus." 

Boutte said, "I feel that we have a 
good representation of the campus on 
the Traffic and Safety Committee. 
The people who make up the com- 
mittee are Bill St. Andre, alternate 
Skeeter Henry, from University Po- 
lice — secretary Sandra Moreau and 
Chief Williams, from Financial Aid — 
Terry Faust, from the Physical 
Plant — Loren Lindsay, purchasing-

Major Stephanie Hargrove from the 
military sciences, and housing secre- 
tary Gwen Keran. The students ap- 
pointed to the committee are David 
Wolfe, senior; Laura McClelland, 
senior; and Tommy Lenz, junior. 

Boutte said that if anyone inter- 
ested in coming to the next meeting, 
it will be on Thursday, Oct 26 at 3 :00

oui readings. He told me one thing 
and amazingly enough it was some- 
thing she had told me. We thought it 
was interesting that we had that in 
common. Next I told him something 
else she told me— amazingly (?) it 
was something she told him, too. As 
the readings were divulged to each 
other we realized that although we 
have completely different pasts, 
hardly anything in common now, and 
have intentions for our futures that 
will probably never bring us back 
together, but according to Mrs. Jane, 
we are the exact same person. 

Could it be that with all of the 
distractions, she had an off day? 
Could it be, rather, that Mrs. Jane has 
the psychic's version of arestaurant's 
soup of the day? For only $5 you can 
get the future du jour. I was very 
disappointed at finding this out, then 
looking through palm reading books 
to find an answer to the questions I 
posed to Mrs. Jane. According to 
these books I am, "literary and very 
critical." Not bad for your beginning 
"analyst." Perhaps I should go by the 
name Mr. Kent. Perhaps she justread 
a different book. 

The last person who attempted to 
write an article about Mrs. Jane was 
turned away as soon as she found out 
he was a reporter, thus I could not tell 
her who I am. Because of this article 
I am now under a twenty four hour

Behavior techniques can help you 
clean up poor food habits, unwanted 
behaviors that block you from fol- 
lowing a healthy diet and seeing long- 
term change. Begin by observing 
when, how, why and what you are 

Are you skipping breakfast, the 
most important meal of the day? Are 
you grabbing a candy bar for break 
because you didn't think to bring a 
piece of fruit from home? Are you 
standing over the stove and snacking 
rather than waiting until you can sit at 
the table and really taste and enjoy 
the foods? Spend several days look- 
ing at how you eat and then work on 
slowly changing one poor habit at a 
time. Be good to yourself and reward 

the changes in non-food ways. 

Before starting a meal, enjoy the 
appearance of the food and drink a 
glass of low calorie beverage. This 
will cut your hunger pains and pre- 
pare you to be more aware of your 

Eat slowly and take at least 20 
minutes to eat a meal. Your body 
takes that length of time to register

That will reduce the number of op- 
portunities for eating and lessen food 

Eat only if hungry. Don't be a 
clock watcher. Skipping meals is not 
encouraged however because you will 
tend to overeat later.

AT&T Collegiate Investment Chal- 
lenge, produced by Wall Street 
Games, Inc., is based on a hands-on 
educational concept that recreates 
actual stock-market trading. Students 
participate in trade in the stock mar- 
ket by calling an 800 line to a full- 
service brokerage firm. "Brokers" 
handle all trades from students using 
a computerized stock quotation net- 
work that receives up-to-the-minute 
prices via satellite from the stock ex- 

The AT&T Collegiate Investment 
Challenge was created by Tim 
DeMello, 30, founder of Wall Street 
Games, Inc. and a former stockbro- 
ker from Boston, who decided there 
should be a realistic way for students 
to go through the trial-and-errorphase 
of learning the stock market and its 
important role in business. 

The top 10 collegiate finishers and 
their guests will be flown to the Ba- 
hamas and spend six days there in 
order to attend the AT&T Awards 
Banquet, where they'll split $61 ,500 
in cash prizes.

player rankings in last year's compe- 

tition had 16 players. The top five 
were Ron Wright, a sophomore, who 
had $702,909.91, ranked 178;Robert 
Rougeau, sophomore, $619,167.26, 
ranked 474; Tim Keeley, junior, 
ranked 705, $591,956.01 ; Carl Man- 
uel, junior, $567,743.25, ranked 
1,089; and Johnny Long, a senior, 
ranked 1,385 with an account value 
of $555,858.72. 

These is a division that ranks col- 
leges against each other. Any college 
with at least 50 students participating 
in the AT&T Collegiate Investment 
Challenge stands to benefit. At the 
end of the competition, the top ten 
colleges in the will receive an en- 
graved plaque from Tim DeMello, 
the founder, at a reception for all par- 

Professors can enter the competi- 
tion in a separate division. 

The Second Annual AT&T Colle- 
giate Investment Challenge begins 
when the stock market opens for 
trading on the morning of Nov. 1 and 
last throueh Feb. 28, 1990. 

Starting with a fictional $500,000 
brokerage account and Standard &

buy and sell shares of stock via 
free AT&T 800 Service to "brofc

longest win streak of the 1980's. 

Last year the Demon ' s scalped the 
Indians with a 27- 1 5 showing in front 
of 1 1 ,568 onlookers at Independence 
Stadium. Northwestern enters this 
week' s game with a record of 4-2 and 
3-0 in the conference. Northeast goes 
in with a record of 3-3 and a confer- 
ence mark of 2-1. 

Don ' t think that NLU has played a 
light schedule and evened out at 3-3. 
They beat a very good McNeese team , 
lost to Mississippi State of the South- 
eastern Conference, and lost to the 
same USL team that was leading the 
University of Alabama in the second 

Some Northeast players to watch 
out for are quarterback Doug Peder- 
son and tight end Jackie Harris, 
NLU' scarcer receptions leader. Also 
a sparkplug to be aware of is running 
back Cisco Richard, who averages 
107 all-purpose yards per game. 

This game will be packed with 
enthusiasm and excitement from 
players as well as the large student 
sections expected from both schools. 
The screamin' fans from Demonland 
are looking for two in a row and three 
of the last four victories over North- 

According to Coach Goodwin, 
"The coaching staffs butt heads in 
recruiting, and I know they have a lot 
of players we tried to get and I'd 
imagine we have some they wanted. 
You tend to take it a little more per- 
sonally than some other games." 

This will be the 38th straight year 
the Demons and Indians have met in 
football since the rivalry was born in 
1952. Northwestern leads the series 
25-12, including four wins in the last 
six meetings since Sam Goodwin 
became the Demon coach. Two of 
the last three games were decided on 
the last play: Keith Hodnett's 27 
yard field goal in 1986 for a 17-14 
NSU win and Jackie Harris' 48 yard 
Hail Mary catch for a 33-31 NLU 
triumph in 1987. A game that will 
haunt Demon fans for years to come. 

Getting back to the importance of 
the week off and what the doctor 
ordered, defensive tackle Mitch Rowe 
was recovering from stone bruises on 
his legs. Also second leading tackier 
for the Demons, linebacker Tracy 
Palmer was suffering from a twisted 
knee. Both men by press time was 
still listed as "probable". Tailback 
Kenneth Dewitt is now fully recov- 
ered from September 13th's arthro- 

scopic surgery on his left knee and 
will start against NLU. All men 
benefiting from the week off and 
gave the Demons time to analyze the 
second half of their season, a possible 
second straight Southland Confer- 
ence championship. 

When asked what the key to vic- 
tory this weekend might be, Coach 
Goodwin replied by saying,"Our 
offense will be the key. We've used 
our fullbacks effectively all year, but 
we * ve never been able to do it against 

Also one interesting note involv- 
ing Scott Stoker, he needs only 129 
yards to overtake Wayne Van as 
Northwestern State's all-time career 
passing king. Van posted 3,967 yards 
as Demon quarterback from 1982-

stance abuse center. He enrolled 
himself at Kilgore Junior College for 
the spring semester and began put- 
ting his life back together again. 

"If I hadn't found help." said 
Gilbreath. "I'd probably be dead 
right now, or worse." 

After finishing rehabilitation, 
Kevin wanted to get back into base- 
ball. He sent out a letter explaining 
his situation to 16 schools. Only four 

He had heard from Northwestern 
State before the letters were sent out 
and signed with them soon after. 
Former head coach Johnnie Emmons 
signed him on the recommendation 
of Panola coach Jacke Davis. 

Kevin came to NSU in the fall of 
'88 and finished the fall season as the 
second starter in the pitching rota- 

"My first game back was better 
than any high I experienced when I 
was drinking." said Gilbreath. 

The highs were just beginning 
though, because Kevin became the 
number one starter midway through 
the season last spring. He also be- 
came an outspoken leader and inspi- 
ration to many of the players while 
compiling a 4-7 record, a 3.50 ERA, 
three one-hitters, and nearly 100 strike 

The 21 year-old junior returns to 
NSU this season as the veteran ace of 
the pitching staff with a new outlook 
on life. 

"Last year I realized my talent I 
gained a lot of confidence and began 
to work hard." Gilbreath said. "I'm 
going to let baseball take me as far as 
it can." The way things are going, it 
should be a lengthy trip.

Softball holds fall training session 

Staff Writer 

It will be a very young Lady 
Demon Softball team that takes the 
field this spring chasing a Southland 
Conference title, but don't consider 
that a liability. Indeed, that could be 
the very factor that helps them the 

Out of nineteen players on Coach 
Rickey McCalister' s squad, only five 
are returning starters, and seven are 
freshman. Yethe seems to be pleased 
with what he's seen of this combina- 
tion so far. 

Returning to the team are seniors 
Anne LaHaye and Jill Jenkins, jun- 
iors Sonja Olsen, Amy Thibault and 
Kelly Banks, and sophomores 
Rhonda Rube, Jemi LaHaye, Travia 
Steward, Ladine Thomas and Lori 

Joining the Lady Demon squad 
are junior Melissa Periera, sopho- 

more Nancy Percle, and freshmen 
Lori Salemi, Claudia Percle, Amy 
Grisham, Ashley Grisham, Kelly 
Fontenot, Sandi Sherrill and Nicole 

"The team is young, bi t it looks 
good," said McCalister of his squad. 

"This is the best fall we 've ever had." 

After three successful fall scrim- 
mages, the Lady Demons can start 
thinking about equating last year's 
team, which racked up the most wins 
ever in Lady Demon history. The 
biggest worry is making sure that 
youth doesn'talsospellinexperience. 

So far, the Lady Demon strengths 
have been many. One is depth and 
versatility, especially in the area of 
pitching. With four catchers, six 
possible pitchers, a choice of nine 
possible outfielders and at least two 
possibles at every other position, their 
coach isn't yet worried about any 
positions being filled. 

Coach McCalister said that speed 
and power were some other impor- 
tant pluses he had noticed. "We've 
got more speed on the bases, and a lot 
more power behind the hitting,"he 

In the hitting department, theLady 
Demons look like they could be doing 
well. Returning from last year are the 
sqaad's two top hitters in Rhonda 
Rube and Sonja Olsen, hitting .342 
and .292, respectively. Rube, a 
catcher, also led the team in hits, 
doubles, home runs, RBI's and slug- 
ging percentage. Olsen led the team 
in walks and runs scored, and was 
second in hits and third in RBI's 
while starting every game at short- 

Returning to provide speed around 
the bases will be last year's leader in 
steals and runs scored, second base- 
man Anne LaHaye, who also pro- 

vides power with a .249 average, and 
pitcher-outfielder Amy Thibault, who 
ranked second on the team in steals. 

One of the biggest differences this 
year will be the number of pitchers in 
rotation. Last year, Coach McCalis- 
ter had only three pitchers to choose 
from, and one of those, Kelly Shot- 
well, has graduated. However, re- 
turning are Lori Hurlburt and Jemi 
LaHaye. Last year, LaHaye posted 
an 8-6 record with one save and a 
1.81 ERA. Hurlburt finished with a 
7-13 record, one save and a 1.78 
ERA.. Backing them in the bullpen 
will be Amy Thibault, Nancy Percle, 
Claudia Percle and Sandi Sherrill. 

With all this going for them, the 
Lady Demons should have a fighting 
chance at the Southland Conference 
title. Butit will still take work. "We're 
going to have to work on fundamen- 
tals," said Coach McCalister.

In all aspects of school, and espe- 
cially sports, upperclassmen are 
looked upon for leadership; most of 
all, seniors. This year, senior Annie 
Bloxson has filled those shoes per- 
fectly for the Lady Demons. 

In her fourth season with theLady

being redshirted

Times have not been good for the 
Lady Demons, coming off a week of 
downs that leaves them climbing ou: 
of a deep hole in the Southland Con- 
ference race after losses to Stephen F. 
Austin and McNeese that brought 
their record to 5-7. 

Last Thursday, NSU traveled to 
Stephen F. Austin for their confer- 
ence opener, and came home with a 
6-15, 16-18, 5-15 loss. Leading the 
effort were Annie Bloxson with 16 
kills and 13 digs, and Sonja Olsen 
with 13 kills and 11 digs. 

Saturday, the Lady Demons came 
home, but fared no better against the 
Cowgirls of McNeese, losing 15-10, 
11-15, 13-15, 15-11, 10-15inaheart- 
breaker. Topping the Lady Demon 
numbers were Bloxson with 28 kills 
and 16 digs, and Olsen with 22 kills 
and 13 digs. 

"Our intensity is up, but our con- 
centration isn't always there," said 
Coach Rickey McCalister after the 
McNeese loss. "We're going to have 
to work real hard to keep it up, or 
we're not going to be able to make the 
crucial plays. Even with everything 
that has been happening, we're proba-

Scholars' College students take part in ISEP 

Staff Writer 

Three NSU students will be par- 
ticipating in the International Stu- 
dentExchange Program (ISEP): Dana 
Linder, Jennifer Walsh, and Julie 
Wingard, all of whom are in the 
Louisiana Scholars' College. 

Julie Wingard will be attending 
the University of Malta on Malta. 
The language of instruction is Eng- 
lish and she will be studying mainly 
history. Malta is composed of two 
islands "60 miles south of Sicily and 
just above Lebanon," she said. Dur- 
ing her stay, Wingard plans to travel 
the continent and then go to Egypt. 
Aside from that she will be exploring 
the islands, where "you can tour in 
busses from World War II for 19 
cents." The economy is roughly 
equivalent to ours. She also applied 

to VaxjO, Sweden, but Malta was her 
first choice: "The history of Malta 
has always intrigued me," she said. 

Dana Linder and Jennifer Walsh 
will be attending VaxjO University in 
Sweden, located in South-central 
Sweden. Linder is enrolled in the 
School of International Business, 
during the semester she will com- 
plete a large project involving meth- 
odology of marketing and research. 
She claims that she has always wan ted 
to study abroad and hopes that her 
profession will take her abroad also. 
"This will really give me an edge 
when I begin my graduate business 
studies." Linder other choices were 
two universities in Australia and one 
in Scotland. 

Walsh will take courses in the 
Intercultural StudiesProgram, where 
she hopes to get a better perspective 

of the worldand "hopefully I'll getan 
idea of what I want with my life," she 
said. Walsh is a veteran of foreign 
exchanges — her first was in Hondu- 
ras and and the second was in Ger- 
many which included a tour of Eu- 
rope and ended with a week in Ire- 
land. She is looking forward in this 
exchange to "getting the Swedish 
college student experience." Her 
curriculum will take her on at least 
one trip into Europe for a case study. 
Walsh'sother choices were Scotland 
and Finland. 

The only drawbacks Walsh and 
Linder see in their exchange are the 
weather, "we'll be very close to the 
North Pole," and "the standard of 
living is so high there that everything 
costs so much more than in the U.S." 
Aside from that though, Sweden of-

Alpha Phi Alpha (9-0), the Greek 
League champion, for the all campus 
flag football championship held yes- 
terday on the ROTC field. 

In a game delayed by rain and 
other obstacles last week, this game 
proved to be well worth the wait as 
over 150 spectators lined the side- 
lines to see who would represent 
Northwestern in the State Tourna- 
ment to be held in New Orleans in 
three weeks. 

The Alpha's scored on their first 
possession as quarterback Jerome 
Sampson optioned around the left 
side and pitched to Charlton Cole for 
a 48 yard score. The PAT was good 
and the Alpha's broke on top 7-0. 
Whatever came right back after the 
ensuing kickoff to march down the 
field and score on a Jeff Howard to 
Greg Scriber 10 yard pass and con- 
verted the 1 point PAT to knot the 
score at 7 all. 

After an exchange of intercep- 
tions, Whatever drove down the field 
and scored on a fourth down pass 
from Howard to Greg Scriber and 
made good on the PAT to take a 14- 
7 lead with 1:30 left in the half. Not 
to be outdone, the Alpha's came

Going into the second half, the 
Alpha's kicked off and held What- 
ever to force a punt. Charlton Cole 
opened the second half scoring with 
a 30 yard run off the option to pull the 
Alpha's up 19-14. With 8 minutes 
left in the game and fourth down at 
the Alpha's 4 yard line, Howard 
found Chris Alexander in the back of 
the end zone for the go ahead TD. A 
Howard to Jeff Mercer pass was 
good for the one point PAT and a 2 1 -

back but were held on downs and 
Whatever took over and run off the 
remaining 4 minutes to ice the game.

NATCHITOCHES — Six cadets 
in the U. S. Army's Senior Reserve 
Officer's Training Corps program at 
Northwestern State University have 
been designated as distinguished 
military students for 1989-90. 

Lt. Colonel Royal Brown III, 
professor of military science and 
director of the ROTC program at 
Northwestern, said the cadets were 
selected on the basis of their per- 
formance in the on-campus ROTC 
program and at thead vanced summer 
camp at Fort Riley, Kan. Academic 
grade-point averages and an evalu- 
ation by the military science faculty 
also helped determine the designa- 

Brown said designation as a dis- 
tinguished military student "can lead 
to a student's selection as a distin- 
guished military graduate upon gradu- 
ation, provided the cadet continues to 
perform in an exemplary manner in 
the classroom and in field laboratory 

Northwestern's distinguished 
military students for 1989-90 are

Our Opinion 

Signage on 1-49 has been a frequent topic of discussion at Natchitoches' City 
Hall. Some say that placing billboards and other signs there will cause the interstate 
to lose its "natural beauty." Others, agreeing with Truvy from Steel Magnolias, say 
that 1-49 has no such thing and that Natchitoches should advertise on one of the major 
roads into the city. 

Another issue that has been brought up is that Northwestern has very little 
representation on the highway leading into town. About a mile or so from the exit to 
Natchitoches, which is labeled several times as "La. 6" and only once as "Natchito- 
ches," there is a state-issued, green and white sign that reads simply "NSU, exit 138." 

Is this any way to promote a college? Those not from Louisiana who pass the sign 
do not know what it is and people from Southern Louisiana probably think it' s abranch 
campus of Nicholls State University. Why should Northwestern, which is a vital part 
of Natchitoches, only have one inadequate sign while Shreveport is listed on signs 
from as far down the road as Alexandria? 

It certainly does not encourage pride among its students. When someone's driving 
down to Louisiana State University, they know it. The reason they know is because 
there are signs everywhere that talk up the school. Several other universities such as 
Northeast, Grambling and USLhave billboards and other forms of roadside advertise- 
ments that give these institutes a good name. Why can't we have the same? 

A possible solution could reflect the university ' s current public relation campaign, 
something similar to the twin billboards near Highway 6. Other plans for a sign on I- 
49 are in the works with the Student Activities Board; it could be either an attractive 
billboard that gives a positive image for the school and the town or even a regulation 
sign that spelled out "Northwestern State University" rather than "NSU." 

We need signs that promote Northwestern on 1-49, not on Highway 6 or the 
Highway 1 Bypass. 1-49 is the most traveled road into Natchitoches for the majority 
of the state — a billboard there would bring a great deal of publicity to the university. 
If nothing else, just relocate the already existing signs out to the interstate and not 
worry about "natural beauty."

Mandatory religious meetings anger student 

Dear Editor, 

On Oct. 11,1 was in my room in 
East Rapides. I was in the middle of 
watching "48 Hours," thenews show, 
when there came a knock upon my 
door. The person on the other side 
that there was a mandatory wing 
meeting in the main lobby. I really 
didn't want to miss any of the show I 
was watching, but what choice did I 
have? I figured they probably wanted 
to talk to us about fire safety or about 
some damages done on our wing. 

When I arrived in the main lobby, 
the meeting had already started. The 
speaker I soon discovered was the 
priest for the Holy Catholic Church 
of Natchitoches. He proceeded to tell 
us that whenever anyone needed any 
help that they could come to see any 
of the local religious leaders. The 
oilier local church leaders were also 
in attendance. 

I thought that they would say their 
little announcement and then the 
house director would get down to 
business, but the priest continued to 

give a sermon. It went something like 
"there are two times in a young man's 
life when he is close to God, when he 
is a little boy and his mother takes 
him by the hand and takes him to 
church, and when he is getting along 
in years and feels that he had better 
get straight with the Lord before he 
leaves the earth. We want to bring 
you young men who are on you own 
now and think 'oh well, I can take 
care of myself now. I don't need 

God,' back to the church. Because I 
am here to tell you that not going to 
church is just a bad habit, like smok- 
ing, you sleep in one Sunday and it 
becomes a habit to sleep in every 
Sunday. You need to break that habit 
and get right with the Lord." 

This carried on for a few more 
minutes in the basic sermon mode. 
Then, when he was through, we dis- 
covered that this was all the meeting 
was for. Now, I've gotnothing against 
God, but I am not into religion and I 
don't care to be. 

In this country, we have a separa- 
tion of church and state and I believe 
that it is an infringement upon my 
rights to force me to listen to a ser- 
mon. I was extremely displeased to 
say the least. In this great country 
where we have the right to follow or 
not to follow as we choose, I have 
been raped of this fundamental right 
and on a college campus where pro- 
gressive thinking is supposed to 

Then I guess I should have known 
that this kind of thing could happen at 
a university where the administration 
is trying to cater to the parents of the 
students, as if we were kindergart- 
ners instead of the students who pay 
to come here. It's just like our limited 

Why are we so limiting? LSU, "a 
great university," as they refer to 
themselves, has much better visita- 
tion rules, yet they don't seem to have 
any problems. Someone tell my why 
does this university continues to take 
a backward, backwoods attitude 

towards policies concerning students 
who are adults. Granted there a few 
17-year-olds here, but that is no rea- 
son to limit the rest of the adult popu- 
lation. I myself am 21 and I find it an 
insult that this school does not think 
I am responsible enough to have visi- 
tors any time I wish or at least more 
than one at a time. I am disgusted. 

First we have the visitation, now 
forced sermons. What is next? Will 
we be told what clothes to wear, what 
music to listen to, shows to watch, 
people to be friends with? I say no 
more please! It's time for a change, a 
move forward for once and not back-

McHale explains tellers 

Ties belong around the neck 

Dear Editor, 

A tie. Depending on one's politi- 
cal affiliation, it can be viewed as half 
of a win or half of a loss. But in the 
opinion of this paper, sports and 
politics do not mix and ties belong 
around the neck. 

This was most evident last Satur- 
day night when the week-long hype 
and hoopla surrounding the State Fair 
Classic ended with the let down of a 
"nobody wins, thanks for coming" 

Football, after all, is considered 
the manliest of sports. An entire 
subculture has evolved around the 
"kill or be killed" finality of the game. 

This can be observed every Satur- 
day when thousands gather at tailgate 
parties, pep rallies, stadiums, and in 
front of T.V's to cheer head-rattling 
hits and goal-line stands. 

Why, then, has the NCAA allowed 
something as passive and empty as a 
tie? Overtime is found at the high 
school and professional levels, but 

not at the college level. 

It is almost humorous: golf, ten- 
nis, baseball and baskeball all have 
ways to break ties at every level. 
College football stands alone. 

Should we flip a coin? How about 
paper, rock, and scissors? Sound 
ridiculous? Probably so, but some- 
thing needs to be done so that coaches, 
players and fans can avoid the "We' 11 
get 'em next year" syndrome. Col- 
lege football deserves an end that 
justifies the means. 

Pete Radicello 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing this letter as an apol- 
ogy to the students of Northwestern. 
As my tenor as SGA president last 
year, I told the students that they 
would have an automatic teller ma- 
chine on campus. I would like the 
students to know that this was not 
idle chatter on my part. 

I had been told by Peoples Bank 
that they would put an automatic 
machine on campus outside the Stu- 
dent Union. Papers were drawn up, 
the university signed them, and a site 
was selected. I was told it would be in 
by Thanksgiving of last year. Then 
there were some problems. 

Peoples decided that perhaps they 
should look at different models of 
machines which is understandable 
because this is a very expensive in- 
vestment for a bank. So the date was 
put off until the spring semester, yet 
still nothing happened. Now it looks 
like the idea has been scraped by 
Peoples Bank. We may never know 

I called Peoples Bank to find out 
what had happened to the idea. After 
explaining what I wanted to know to 
several different people, I was in- 

formed that I needed to talk to Morris 
Snead, president of Peoples Bank. 

I tried to call Snead for two weeks 
with no success. Snead must be a 
very busy man because he seemed to 
always have "just stepped away from 
his desk." I left a message for Snead 
each time I called. Snead never re- 
turned any of my calls, so I called and 
left Snead another message. I told 
Snead, or perhaps I should say I told 
his secretary, that if he did not have 
the common courtesy to return a 
simple phone call that I would not be 
doing business with Peoples Bank 
and that I would advise all of my 
friends to do the same. I still have not 
heard form Snead. 

I realize that times have been tough 
on the banking industry in Louisiana. 
That, however, is no reason for bad 
manners. I just wanted to write this 
short letter to let the students know 
that I was not just blowing hot air 
about an automatic teller machine 
but that something did go wrong. If 
you would like to know what hap- 
pened I suggest that you call the 
Peoples Bank and ask for Mr. Morris 
Snead. I believe he has just stepped 
away from his desk.

Mitchell issues last word on Black Caucus 

Dear Editor, 

I want to begin this article by 
saying that last week's issue of the 
Current Sauce was probably the best 
one that has been printed in years.I 
am thrilled that so many students 
here felt compelled to address this 
topic and to take the time to actually 
write in to the newspaper. I am 
grateful to those who defended my 
position and even to those who did 
not I truly believe that more students 
should not be afraid to address the 
student population about important 
issues which are relevant to all of us. 

Even though I am proud of the 
students who presented articles to the 
Sauce, the true issues here have been 
clouded for a variety of reasons. For 
example, when I used the names of 
certain fraternities and sororities in 
my first article in order to prove a 
point the men and women affiliated 
with those organizations got upset. 
When the Black Caucus Association 
first got started, people got upset 
because of the name of the organiza- 
tion. I hope that you come to realize 
that terms are not really important 
here. I was not insulting the Greek 
organizations but when I mentioned 
some names my arguments were 
turned out because they were of- 
fended. Many students here on 
campus will not support the Black 
Caucus Association, which was de- 
signed to enhance minority partici- 

pation in campus activities, simply 
because the word 'black' is being 
used. We are creating complications 
where there need not be any, and 
sounding off in anger or making 
accusations of any kind without 
having the facts clear will not solve 
our problems. 

My main intention of writing these 
articles is to raise consciousness about 
the fact that racism is alive and well 
here at Northwestern State Univer- 
sity and almost everywhere else in 
the country. I did not ever mean to 
imply that it did not exist in New 
Hampshire or in any other area be- 
sides the deep south. However, I 
cannot change the rest of the world, 
but I do feel as though I have the 
power to make positive changes in 
my world and in my environment. 

way to sum up the reason that I have 
written the articles is because I used 
to feel like a person, and now I feel 
like a 'black' person. To a surprising 
number of people that means that you 
are dumb, lazy, and that you will not 
amount of anything. It means that 
you will, probably, either be on drugs, 
be in jail, or be dead by the age of 
thirty. It means that no matter how 
far that you might get in life, you will 
be reminded in one way or another 
that you are 'black'. 

Back home in New Orleans, I 
talked to different black men about 
the turn of events here at NSU, and 
allowed them to read the various ar- 
ticles that were submitted. When 
mine were read, I was told that I was 
causing problems which did not need 
to be started. I was told that I should 

As much as I would like to put an just accept things the way that they 

end to racism everywhere, it goes 
without saying that such a wish is 
quite impossible. I don't think that I 
can even impede racism here at NSU, 
but I have caused people to give cre- 
dence to the fact that prejudice is 
alive in our culture and in ourselves. 

I was asked why I wrote these 
articles recently, and I honestly did 
not have an answer for the gentle- 
men. For me personally, this issue 
goes far beyond writings in a college 
newspaper. I don't feel the same way 
that I used to feel, and it is very 
difficult to explain. I guess the best 

are, and to keep my mouth shut. One 
of my relatives told me that when all 
is said and done, whites will still be 
whites, and blacks will still be blacks. 
I came back to school very discour- 
aged, thinking that all of my efforts 
were for naught. I told myself that I 
hadn't changed anything. However, 
Tuesday's paper came out and page 
two showed me that I truly had made 
a difference. It made me realize that 
I couldn't just turn by back on all of 

I pray that all of you do notchoose 
to turn your backs on this issue. It is 

important that we reevaluate our atti- 
tudes now, before it is too late. We 
need to try to build each other up 
instead of constantly letting things 
such as words and terms come be- 
tween us. If I have offended some- 
one, there is no need to withhold your 
name in an article of next week's 
Current Sauce. Call me at 4209, and 
I will be more than happy to discuss 
the problem rationally. I simply 
believe that what I am doing is right, 
and so once again I urge everyone to 
take a look around. Lift your heads 
out of this newspaper and look at how 
the seating arrangement is in the 
cafeteria and in the Student Union. 
Look everywhere on the campus of 
ours, and if you don't like something, 
don't be afraid to make a change. It 
is all up to us. 

I heard something very profound 
the other day, and I feel the need to 
share it with you. "In darkness we are 
all the same. It is only our knowledge 
and wisdom that separate us." 
Wouldn ' t it be wonderful if we could 
not see the people staring at us, laugh- 
ing at us, making us feel as though we 
are doing something wrong? Per- 
haps someday we can create a world 
that is blind to prejudice of all kinds. 
For the moment, we are all in chains.

tate Fair activities, game kept Demon fans busy 

to lucky spectators. 

Saturday kept the court busy be- 
ginning with a reception at the Boss- 
ier Sheraton which was sponsored by 
the Student Government Association. 
Both school ' s queens and their courts 
were presented to an audience that 
consisted of student leaders, faculty 

members and administrators as well 
as alumni, community leaders and 
other invited guests. 

After the reception the court joined 
the hundreds of students from both 
schools at the annual Rally in the 
Alley. The event, sponsored by 
Humphries, was located in Shreve 

Square in downtown Shreveport. 
Students enjoyed themselves by play- 
ing games for bar tabs while listening 
to Dick Dante and the Infernos. "The 
alley really gets people motivated for 
the game. I could hardly wait for it to 
start," said Lori Bemont, a senior 
from Winnfield.

SAB sponsors community Thanksgiving food drh 

Staff Writer 

"Lend A Hand, Give ACan" is the 
and Student Government 
Association's Thanksgiving Canned 
Food Drive which begins Wednes- 
day, Nov. 1, and continues through 
Friday.Nov. 17, on the NSU campus. 

According to Linda Davis, Stu- 

dent Activities Board representative- 
at-large, the SAB will try to make the 
food drive an annual event. "We 
encourage everyone to give as many 
cans as possible," emphasized Davis . 
"The SAB wants to make this areally 
big project." 

Dorms and organizations at NSU 
will participate in the 17-day drive, 
during which the public is being 

encouraged to drop canned food items 
in receptacles which will be placed 
on the Northwestern campus at the 
Sylvan Friedman Student Union and 
in all residence halls and in Natchito- 
ches at A&P Food Store on Keyser 
Avenue, Brookshire's Food Store in 
the Dixie Plaza Shopping Center, 
Winn-Dixie Store in the Cane River 
Shopping Center and at Dixie Dandy 
on Texas Avenue. 

A cash award will be given to the 
group who gathers the largest num- 
ber of cans and the top three will 
receive engraved plaques. A bar 
graph will be placed in the Student 
Union in order to monitor progress 
and foster competition between or- 

Skeeter Henry, director of student 
organizations and activities at North- 
western, said the SAB andSGAare 

coordinating the Thanksgiving 
Canned Food Drive through the Food 
Bank at the First Presbyterian Church 
in Natchitoches. "The canned food 
that we collect during the drive will 
be turned over to the Food Bank for 
distribution to needy families in 
Natchitoches Parish," said Henry. 
"There are many families in the par- 
ish who are in need of food, espe- 
cially large families and elderly. It is 

Carroll selected as new design technical director 

Staff Writer 

Northwestern State University's 
theater department recently added a 
new faculty member to its staff. 
Vemon Carroll has joined the de- 
partment this fall as the design tech- 
nical director. 

"There is an audience for good 
theater in the Natchitoches area and 
on this campus. There is also a need 
for good theater and it's a need that 

we intend to fulfill," said Carroll. 

Before coming to Northwestern, 
Carroll served as the technical de- 
signer for Theater Charlotte in North 
Carolina. "I was very impressed with 
Northwestern," said Carroll. "The 
theater facilities here are probably 
the best for an institution is this state, 
and I was very impressed by the presi- 
dent, Bill Brent and the faculty 
members I met." 

Carroll received a theater and

Auchard speaks at LSC 


Staff Writer 

On Oct. 19, the Louisiana 
Scholar's College had the privilege 
of hearing Dr. John Auchard lecture 
on Alexis de Toqueville's Democ- 
racy In America. Auchard, a resident 
of Washington D.C., is an associate 
professor of English at the University 
of Maryland. 

Auchard' s lecture was lengthy but 
interesting, as he read passages from 
The Portrait of a Lady, Democracy 
InAmerica, and UnMoriofranoi, an 
Italian work of fiction. Out of these 
three works, Auchard very passion- 
ately compared American cities to 
European cities. He gave the impres- 

sion that because tradition was dying 
out in American cities, they were be- 
ginning to look uniform, unlike the 
European cities that have a certain 
character or atmosphere about them 
all their own. Despite these things, he 
said that even though American cit- 
ies were uniform, they had their free- 
dom, and that diversity in Europe 
caused Europe's loss of freedom. 

During his lecture, Auchard 
showed his quick wit, his intelligence, 
and his ability to relax his audience. 
He made the audience think about 
what he said, and understand the 
points he made. After the lecture was 
over, a question and answer session 
was held.

sity and then worked at Appalachian

"I enjoyed the academic situation 

because I get a kick out of it," said 
Carroll. "I enjoy working with people 
and helping them learn. It's like gel- 
ting paid for having a good time." 

According to Carroll, his job at 
NSU as designer and technical direc- 
tor is actually two jobs. The scene 
designer analyzes the script and de- 
signs the scenery. The technical di- 
rector take the designs and breaks 
them down into working drawings. 
"You could say I'm responsible for 

the visual aspects of a play . A techni- 
cal director makes that happen. I take 
the designs and translate them into 
actual things," said Carroll. 

Last week "Steel Magnolias" 
made its stage debut and was well re- 
ceived by its audience, Carroll said. 
The NSU theater department will soon 
debut the all-time classic "Our Town" 
and next spring the musical "Carni-

Missing several key players and 
1AB and SGAi fo^g ^ most underrated team in 
i donations va the conference, Northwestern barely 
saved their lead in the Southland 
Conference race with a 14- 14 tie with 
Northeast in Independence Stadium 
to bring their record to 4-2-1 and 3-0- 

With quarterback Scott Stoker and 

linebacker Tracy Palmer both seeing 

limited time, and wide receiver Al 

Edwards on the sidelines, the 12th 

ranked Demons were forced to rely 

on replacements and big play s to keep 

their hold on the SLC. Meanwhile, 

the tie gives Northeast still half a 

chance at the tide, should things not 

go well for Northwestern and S tephen 

F. Austin in the next few weeks. 

»le for carpeni "I don 't like the tie, but it aUows us 

chnicians s W keCP °° 0W destin y'" 

construction Coach Sam Goodwin. "We win our 

information, »* tw ° ganieS ' WC T league 
and get the automatic playoff berth." 

Even playing only three quarters, 
Scott Stoker was still the star of the 
show. The senior quarterback threw 
for a season high 294 yards and 2 
touchdowns, breaking records along 
the way. Stoker now holds the NSU 
career record for passing yards and 
total completions, passing up Wayne 
Van and Don Guidry, respectively. 
The performance also brought him 
SLC Offensive Co-Player of the 
Week honors. 

Otheroffensivestandouts included 
fullback Pete Ellis, receiver Victor 
Robinson and tight end Carlos Tread- 
way. Ellis led the Demon rushing 
attack with 61 yards, including a 44- 
yard scamper in the first quarter. 
Robinson had 3 receptions for 115 
yards, including one for 99 yards, a 
touchdown and an NCAA I- AA rec- 
ord. Treadway had 3 receptions for 
100 yards and a touchdown. 

The Demons weren't slack on the 
other side of the ball either. Leading 
the defense were Andre Carron with 
14 tackles, Milton Constransitch with 
11, and Dennis Smith and Randy 

Carroll or \ 






Hilliard with 9 apiece. Helping out 
was Greg Necaise with 2 sacks, and 
Smith also snared two interceptions 
in the second quarter. 

The first half was a defensive 
battle, with Chris Hamler's missed 
45- and 30-yard field goals and Mil- 
ton Constransitch's block of Rob 
Tallent's attempt being the closest 
things to scoring. 

"Chris Hamler is our kicker," said 
Goodwin. "We'll live and die by 
him. Every kicker goes through rough 
spots. We're sticking with Chris, 
because we know he'll get the job 

The second half excitement began 
when NLU scored on a four-yard 
pass to Jackie Harris barely one 
minute after the Demons lost the ball 
on downs on their own 34 yard line. 

Four plays later, the Demons 
struck back with a 65-yard touch- 
down pass from Stoker to Carlos 
Treadway to complete an 83-yard 
drive to tie the score at seven. 

With 4:33 left in the third quarter, 
Stoker gained the Northwestern ca- 
reer passing record with a 5-yard 
completion to Jerry Roberson. Stoker 
finished the game with 4,133. yards 
and four games to go. 

Northeast scored again with 9:23 
left in the game on a 3-yard run by 
quarterback Doug Pederson, making 
the score 14-7. The drive had been 
started when Trey Fulton snapped 
the ball over Mark Contreras' head 
on a fourth and fourteen for a 37-yard 

With four and a half minutes left, 
the Indians downed a punt on 
Northwestern's 1 yard line. On the 
next play, Stoker completed a 99- 
yard scoring strike to Victor Robin- 
son, who was replacing Al Edwards. 
The pass set new records for NSU, 
the Southland Conference and Divi- 
sion I-AA. 

"They 'd been crowding us all night 
and that's a route that the receiver 
adjusts to the coverage,"said Good- 
win. "If he gets a cushion, he runs a 
hitch and if they crowd him. he runs

The tie was preserved when Rob 
Tallent missed his second field goal 
of the game with 29 seconds left. On 
the next play, Stoker broke the NSU 
career completion record with a 13- 
yard completion to Jerry Roberson. 

This week, the Demons will travel 
to Huntsville, Texas, to face confer- 
ence rival Sam Houston. SHSU is 
coming off a 14-6 upset of North 
Texas at Denton last week. 

The Bearkats will be showing 
many strong players, including this 
week's SLC Special Teams and 
DefensivePlayersoftheWeek. Their 
defense is led by preseason All- 
American defensive end Andre 
"Sackm aster" Finley. The Bearkats 
are also sporting the SLC's third 
ranked rushing offense and 4 running 
backs with over 220 yards this year. 
Sam Houston happens to be the last 
conference team NSU lost to, back in 


"That's a very impressive win they 
got at North Texas,"said Goodwin of 
his upcoming foes. "Now they have 
some momentum, still have a shot at 
the conference championship, and 
they come home for homecoming to
